Illustrations of primates
October 30, 2007 11:31 AM   Subscribe

Look at that tail! Stephen Nash has illustrated the most endangered primates (image gallery: part 1, part 2) -- so faithfully over the years that one now bears his name. The just-released "Primates in Peril" report has full profiles of each animal, along with all of Nash's illustrations (including those replaced by photos in the gallery above -- don't miss the sumatran orangutan!).

Ah geez, the Sumatran orangutan sorta looks like my dad.

I guess now that he's only doing an occasional reunion tour thing with Crosby, Stills and Young, he's really able to focus on his art.

I loved his work on game theory. It's admirable how he isn't letting old age or schizophrenia slow him down.

Back in 2001, a friend was attending a conference in the same building as another conference featuring the two new titi monkey species. She was able to pick up a copy of the article, which included a great fold out poster showing about 20 different titi monkeys, illustrated by Stephen Nash, "in geographical array" — laid out approximately as you would find them in the Amazon basin.

I wish I could get another copy of that poster!
