Illustrations created for the Encyclopedia of Life: “Global Access to Knowledge About Life on Earth”.

These images were produced as part of the exemplar species pages for the launch of the Encyclopedia of Life. Each was created with feedback from specialist scientists. The visionary website originated from biologist E.O. Wilson’s 2007 TED prize and is a collaboration between the Smithsonian, the Marine Biological Laboratory, Harvard University and the Field Museum, among others.  The goal of the project is to provide digital information and images for every species on the planet.
