As seen through the eyes of Ernst Haeckel!

The very talented Ernst Haeckel was a biologist, naturalist and famous artist who discovered and captured many new species and organic life forms. He has produced over 100 detailed and beautifully coloured illustrations of animals and sea creatures. 

Ernst's work is centered around geometric shapes and organic forms that capture exceptional precision. His illustrations are gently coloured with refreshing lemon, cool blue, olive green and sepia tones. I love how his work is executed with intense attention to detail and upmost delicacy, which appeals to the perfectionist side of my nature. Ernst's work provides great visual and structural inspiration by the vast wealth of quirky shapes and patterns. 

They are insanely intricate!
