Artforms of Nature

This blog is a GREAT way for me to have a visual reference of the TONS of notes and names and scribbles that are buried in the pages of my Moleskine. Some time ago I read about Ernst Haeckel (1834 – 1919), a German “biologist, naturalist, philosopher, physician, professor and artist who discovered, described and named thousands of new species, mapped a genealogical tree relating all life forms, and coined many terms in biology, including ecology, phylum, phylogeny” (source: Wikipedia). Well, what really astonished me were his incredible nature drawings. And the nice thing is that you can actually get them all online, thanks to the open source initiative Wikipedia Commons. Images are available in very good resolution too. I love the way Haeckel turned his nature sketches in such a rich and delicate collections of extremely detailed depiction of the nature art forms.
