Coronavirus Illustration

Today I drew an illustration of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2). This is the virus that causes COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019). It is depicted both free-floating and within a water droplet. Both isolated.

I’m putting it up on my Shutterstock account.  Should be available in a few days.  Or you can contact me directly.

Chicken or Egg

Which came first?  The chicken or the egg? Please note that this is a bit simplified, since it's doubtful that the distinction between a red jungle fowl and a chicken came about in just one generation.  More likely, there were quite a few generations of a long grey area between sorta-a-red-jungle-fowl-sorta-a-chicken before it became obviously the distinct species we now call a chicken.   But, either way, the egg still came first.

Dammit, Jim, I’m an illustrator, not a biologist.
