Glendon Mellow – Testing the hypothesis people crave surreal scientific illustrations. / Portfolio: Art in Awe of Science / Blog:...

I was born under a cabbage leaf in the summer of 1974, covered in stork feathers and placenta. I’m inspired by evolution and biology to create my paintings. I’m particularly fond of Naples Yellow. Delicious looking colour, and not healthy at all. I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada with my wife Michelle, our son Calvin and our hermit crab Shiny.

My inspirations come from the fossil record, biology and the study of evolution by natural selection. Consider my work paleo/atheist/humanist friendly! Comments always encouraged!
