poisonous jellyfish

But no, okay just imagine a conversation between Bones and Jim about “why do you want to go into the black?” Etc usual Friday night conversation ya know. Anyway, Bones somehow mentions the ocean and Jim gets really serious “I’d rather fight a pissed off Vulcan before I go exploring under water. In the 21st century they had poison bags.” “Jellyfish?”
“More like hellyfish”

My very last painting I have completed as a Scientific Illustration student. The last 9 months in the Scientific Illustration program at CSUMB has taught me so much, I am sad to be leaving it. However, I now feel truly prepared to call myself a professional and enter in to working world as an Illustrator. Next stop, Ireland for an Internship with the Marine Ecology Group in Cork! I can’t wait!
