Actinopterygii (rayfinned fish) excluding Euteleostei and Ostarioclupeomorpha

 

Ornithischia - Triceratops, Stegosaurs, ankylosaurs, Pachysaurus and the Hadrosaur

 

Sauropods - Brachiosaurus, Diplodocus, Apatosaurus and Brontosaurus

I had a go at colouring it as an idea for prints for children??

 

Placoderms - (armoured fish)

 

Birds of paradise - paradise crow, manucode, king of saxony, western parotia, sicklebill, riflebird etc..

 

Osteichthyes (bonyfish) - excluding Tetrapodamorpha and Actinopterygii - lungfish, coelacanths

I've been colouring in! Caniformia - Dogs, Wolves, foxes, bears, otters, seals .. and the rest..

 

Root of the tree annotated - Protocell, Bacteria, Archaea, Actinobacteria, Nucleus, Animal cells, Giardia Lamblia, Chloroplasts, Excavata, Rhizaria, Chromalveolata Plant cells, Green Algae, Rhodophyta (Red Algae), Phaeophyceae (Brown Algae)

This was the hardest part of the tree for my tiny brain and I still don't understand it all, I'm not sure anyone really does. There are a few hypothesis' in there and some of them might be less likely however I have included for artistic reasons. (The Nucleus having an endosymbiotic relationship with an Archaea and the origin of Archaea)

 

Arachnids - Spiders scorpions, ticks, mites, harvestmen, and solifuges

 

Synapsids (stem mammals) - Dimetrodons, Lystrosaurus etc.. also I have included the echidna and platypus

Bringing Silicon to Life_ Scientists Persuade Nature to Make Silicon-Carbon Bonds

Researchers in Frances Arnold’s lab at Caltech have persuaded living organisms to make chemical bonds not found in nature. The finding may change how medicines and other chemicals are made in the future.

Full Tree Cadogram

I finally finished making cladograms and finding images that I plan to work from for my next drawings!!

Plants

I thought that I should make a poster that was more focused on plants as they were neglected in my first poster. Here's what I've done so far.

 

 

I also spent a bit more time looking at the earlier stages of cell evolution

I made this and put it on a T-Shirt for a Christmas present.

Cladograms

I took a bit of a break after finishing colouring then I started to research more in depth and make cladograms in preperation for my next one. I might just make a few of certain branches of the tree for example plants, bacteria, insects.

Colour Poster

My next step was to start colouring in my image. It was a lot more time consuming that I thought it would be. I spent a few months colouring it, I used photoshop, deleting the white areas then colouring underneath the black lines

Developement ideas

I got it scanned and some printed out, I also took it to a screen-printers and got some screen prints done. I now have so many ideas of where to take it next.

I played around with the image for some possible T-Shirt ideas and for a poster for a local bar
