rhamphotheca:

A Visual Compendium of Bioluminescent Creatures

Hi guys! My name is Eleanor and I’m a self-employed artist from Seattle. This blog post is the first installment of what will hopefully be a year-long infographic design project. I’ve always been into biology and design, so I’m taking a year off after college to see if I can combine the two with at least marginal success.
It’s more of an experiment than anything else, so feel free to leave comments about what works, what doesn’t, and what might be scientifically incorrect despite my best efforts. I spend a lot of time trying to make these infographics accurate (for this post I read a 468 page textbook and used over 200 other sources) but naturally I’m not an expert in every subject I write about.
Today’s post diagrams a few of the most well studied bioluminescent organisms. Hope you enjoy it, and thanks for stopping by :)

John Pound lives in Eureka, California. He’s either 62 or 63—he can’t remember at the moment—and he’s been a cartoonist his whole life. The first half of his career was traditional, insofar as any career in weirdo art and underground comics can be traditional. He sketched and inked and colored by hand. He made the annual pilgrimage to Comic-Con, back in the days when it was still concerned with comics. In 1984, he collaborated with comics legend Art Spiegelman on the first run of Garbage Pail Kids cards for Topps, painting 40 gross characters in 40 exhausting days.

But in the late 1980s, the purchase of his first computer, an Amiga, set Pound’s artistic pursuits on a slightly different course. He started checking out other people’s computer art and got to wondering what his new machine could do for a cartoonist. Eventually, he became smitten with the idea of creating a program that could automatically generate comics for him. The dream has kept him busy for the better part of three decades. Today, he’s generating striking, randomly generated compositions by the hundreds, none of which look anything like what the art we’ve come to expect from computer code.

Pro tip: John Pound is on Tumblr. Go follow him immediately.

Do it.

Now.

Record-Breaking Cosmic ‘Magnifying Glass’ Found by Hubble Telescope
In a surprising discovery, astronomers have found a faraway galaxy that doubles as a cosmic “magnifying glass.” At 9.6 billion light-years away, it could be the most distant such object known to science, NASA announced today (July 31).
Spotted in observations from the Keck Observatory in Hawaii and the Hubble Space Telescope, the galaxy is big enough to magnify an even more distant galaxy 10.7 billion light-years away, thanks to a phenomenon known as gravitational lensing.

How The Television Has Evolved
The television counts among a handful of designs that most dramatically changed 20th-century society. As this illustrated poster by Reddit user CaptnChristiana visualizes, the design has evolved mightily since the boxy retro contraptions of yesteryear, like the Emyvisor and the Marconi. With flatscreens and high-definition displays that can seem crisper and more colorful than reality itself, 21st-century viewers are comparatively spoiled.
