In mid-February, I gave an invited talk to the UW Dept. of Zoology & Physiology. It was entitled: "Drawn to Science: Exploring the Historical and Contemporary Synergies between Drawing, Creativity, and Science," and a recording is available to watch via WyoCast

Wyoming EPSCoR recently interviewed me about the nature drawing/field journal workshops I teach  (most recent workshop was for Biodiversity Institute on 3/5).

I have begun writing an illustrated natural history column for literary/arts/nature children's magazine root & star. My first piece was published in the spring 2016 issue.
