So I don't know if you guys know this but Monterey Bay Aquarium Have Live Web Cams of some of their tanks

Monterey Bay Aquarium is hands down my favorite aquarium, and since I don’t currently live close to it anymore it’s nice to know they have live feeds of some of their exhibits including their Deep Sea tank

Their Kelp Forest

as well as many more.

The live cams are really relaxing and great if you don’t have your own aquariums to watch, or if you just want to see penguins walk around.

Inspired by the kelp forest at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. I actually drew this over half a year ago but forgot to upload it :p

It’s con season again so I’ll be at Kraken Con this weekend 4/25 - 4/26 in the Oakland Convention Center.  My table is in the vendor’s hall with my prints and books as usual. If you any questions about the Axent Wear headphone’s progress or just want to chat and hangout, swing by and say hi! :D

Beam me up, jelly! While it looks like a tiny spaceship taking off, this comb jelly’s rainbow lights are produced by diffraction, much like sunlight glancing off a CD. More active than most jellies, Beroe forskalii often folds over itself, earning it the common name of “oven mitt jelly.”

Check out these otherworldly jellies in our Open Sea gallery 


Field sketching at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. We were encouraged to take notes while drawing, and I often went a bit overboard with unimportant/obvious insights. 

I’m overly proud of that cuttlefish, especially the fin and how it’s undulating, and the close-up study of the eye.
