Easily one of the top 10 in my list of places to see before I die, the Galapagos Archipelago, besides being the very cradle of the evolution of evolutionary science, houses a magical range of biodiversity! And thanks to the Save Our Seas Foundation, I got an opportunity to illustrate what a typical panorama at the Galapagos Marine Reserve looks like. From blood-sucking Vampire Finches to diving Boobies, from the algae-munching Marine Iguana to the cactus-loving Land Iguana, from tiny endemic catsharks to massive Humpback Whales; you'll find them all this gigantic illustration that appears along side a piece on Galapagos in the SOSF magazine. Find the magazine online here.
Special thanks to Jade Schulz, Pelayo Salinas and James Lea from the Save our Seas Foundation for commissioning the piece and for guiding me through it.
