Blog / 2012 / The Pleasure of Panel

March 26, 2012

When I decided to use panel as my support for Crime Against Nature, I had no idea just how much I would learn from it.

Keeping the Little Man Barefoot and Pregnant (Pot-bellied Seahorse)

In all species of seahorse, including the pot-bellied seahorse, the female inserts a tube into a hole in the abdomen of the male, depositing her eggs in his pouch. The male incubates the eggs inside his body and gives birth to live baby seahorses.

Learn about all the animals in Crime Against Nature by reading the book! And for prints and pretty things with this seahorse on them, check out my Redbubble shop.

Maybe this post made you think of something you want to share with me? Or perhaps you have a question about my art? I’d love to hear from you!
