Glorious Biology GIFs Visualize The Secrets To Animal Flight

Seattle-based artist and recent University of Washington graduate Eleanor Lutz has decided to spend a year combining her two passions: design and biology. To bring the two seemingly disparate fields together, she started her own infographic design project, a science illustration blog chock full of GIF deconstructions of human and animal behavior. Combining Photoshop, Illustrator, and a Wacom drawing tablet, Lutz has so far completed four installments of her animated infographic series, and shared them on Tabletop Whale, her project blog.

Lutz’s first blog post, entitled “A Visual Compendium of Glowing Creatures”, was published on July 21st of this year. 200 sources and a 468 page textbook later, Lutz’s final product, a poster of bioluminescent organisms, glows with detailed illustrations and biological profiles of each organism. This past month, Lutz followed up her debut with 25 GIF infographic, A User’s Guide to the Human Body: The Muscle Edition, and an animated chart of 42 North American butterflies. It’s a glorious marriage of science and art, and we can’t wait to see what Lutz will illustrate next.

And tnat’s Ivan Bilibin’s illustrations to “The Song of the Merchant Kalashnikov” by Mikhail Lermontov.

"The Song" was done in the style of medieval Russian poems. It tells about some love story in the time of tsar Ivan’s the Terrible reign. Of course everything is very romantic and very tragical, yes. 

(So I should put down a tag like “funny life in 16th-century Moscow”)
