Now, who says art and science don’t mix? Our Thortful image of the day is an illustration that disproves the theory that science, environmentalism, evolution – or anything else relative to those fields – need to be visually dull. In fact, they can be among the richest sources of inspiration for young illustrators like New York-based Gaby D’Alessandro. Gaby created a brilliant, Darwinian series for Nautilus magazine, to accompany an article which argued the specifics of Charles Darwin’s study of the Galapagos Islands.
We know we’ve featured two images above, but really it’s a crime we couldn’t fit the whole series into one blog post. We strongly urge anyone reading to check out Gaby’s behance portfolio. Though originally from the Dominican Republic, having studied Fine Arts and Illustration at Altos de Chavón, she moved to New York to complete her education at the prestigious Parsons The New School for Design. She has a distinguished style and an experienced hand, so we urge you to memorise her work. Y’know, just so you can say you heard it here first. See her website, twitter or instagram to connect.
