This is a Scaly-foot Gastropod. They are the only animal on Earth known to incorporate iron sulfides into their bodies.  They actually build metal shields around their feet, that, along with the underlying organic layer, protect themselves from the extreme heat produced in their hydrothermic vent environment.

Part of the "Stones & Bones" Series

"I always varied pens but rarely drawing surfaces.
Out of paper for a short time, I turned to the two inert materials: stone and bone.
These inert materials seemed so ordinary!
This is not the case. They are still “living” materials: rough, bold, smooth, cracked, absorbent ….
Taming the variety of surfaces on a volume is a real adventure!

So I put aside the paper and canvas fabric to experiment with new drawing sensations.
Hand fits. The fingers feel every bumps. The spirit leaves guided by reliefs. The tip of the pen folds and unfolds. I even had the feeling that this matter thank me for taking care of.

Today, I look differently. I understand them differently.
This experience has enriched my own drawing skills.
The “inert and dead” matter, gave me some lessons.
The following images are the result.”

I have skulls, I have pens, I love doing pen art….fuck it I’m trying this out!

Good lord, the detail!

Bone is an IMMENSELY gratifying surface to work on.

These are ahmazing!

Chose a mollusc to paint in acrylic for scientific illustration. This is called an Irish yellow slug. If you are grossed out, then my work is successful. :)

Another thing to reveal the glory of Wales, where I may have an ancestor or two buried, btw, if names are anything to go by.
