Sketches of a tall-finned sperm whale, after a type of marine cryptid.


Sketch of a fantastic spaceship that resembles an insect.


Sketch of a fantastic spaceship that resembles an insect.





Sketches of insectile "organic rifles", culminating in a big fat termite that one simply cradles about and shoots like a living squirt-gun. I have no idea why a civilisation potent enough to mould insects into kinetic weapons would need to have rifles, but this was nevertheless a fun exercise.


Colour study, in pencil, for the "decal crature" that appears on the entrance of this website.


Unreferenced sketch of an ichthyosaur, a type of prehistoric marine reptile.


Sketch of a Star Wars spaceship derived from Aegirocassis, a prehistoric marine invertebrate.


Sketch of a stocky, bird-and-turtle-like reptile playing with a ball. An exercise in speculative evolution.



Sketch of fully-aquatic predatory dinosaurs evolved from spinosaurs.
Not real animals, but an exercise in speculative evolution.


Doodle of a fly-like form.


Various creature-forms glimpsed in the images generated by the Ganbreeder algorithm.


Sketch of the prehistoric archosaur Poposaurus, from a skeletal drawing by the great Scott Hartman.


Make way, the chonk creature is coming along! An exercise in speculative evolution.


Sketch of a moth drawn from real life, family Pyralidae - not Geometridae as the caption indicates.


An architectural fantasy.


Sketches of Metautarops and Pseudosymmetrognathus;
results from an evolutionary exercise where I tried to imagine arthropods that evolved rodent-like bodyplans.


Sketch of a machine pistol produced from bone-like organic parts.


This image I produced in Ganbreeder formed the basis of the gun-snouted creature seen below.


Sketches chronicling the evolution of "flat amphibians" from a lineage of laterally-flattened lungfish.


Sketches of two fantastic tombstones.


Sketch of an "ancestral dinosaur"; a hypothetical form which later give rise to all main groups of dinosaurs.


A portrait of Velociraptor, the famous dinosaur.


Sketch of a big-brained dinosaur, an exercise in speculative evolution.


Pencil study of the early dinosaur Coelophysis.


Drawing of a lion-like animal fighting a snake-like animal, inspired by an old mural.


Collage sketch of a Bull of Apis.


Sketch of a hexapedal dream-woman.



The famous paradoxical Cambrian organism Opabinia re-designed as a vertebrate-like animal, after a concept by Julio Nicoletti.


Various sea monsters from Snaiad, alongside other creatures.


Sketch of an ancient flying reptile by the ruins of an arcane lost city.


A bird-like dream creature.


Sketches of "organic houses" arrayed on an alien plain.
