Interesting, reminds me a lot of parts of the Codex Seraphinianus.

Heh. Woodpecker shrooms. Strange, though all very familiar. I recall reading something from Gurdjieff once stating that it was nearly impossible to draw an imaginary animal that didn't resemble some other already extant animal. Though that doesn't seem to be Ross' intent, I wonder if anyone can do such a thing.

My drawings offer visual hypotheses to the question: what would happen if the DNA sequence of a plant or mushroom were spliced with that of an animal?

My God! Bush warned us!

I was hoping for a racoon/finger monkey (fingercoon?)...but I guess that's not implausible enough.

These are nice.

Shame about the site design, which screams cheap bootleg Viagra marketplace.

Lovers of Hieronymus Bosch, eat your heart out.

I tell you, it is shocking how many young people today cannot recognize a portabello/opossum cross.

I was kinda hoping for a Devil's Snuffbox Shark riding a Death Cap Elephant, trampling, exploding spores, causing hallucinations, and eating everything they see.

Bush? Prince Charles was worried in 1995. From that article: How can you tell if the food on your plate has been genetically engineered? The short answer is: you can't.

I guess it's because they don't want you to know.

Lovers of Hieronymus Bosch, eat your heart out.

I think he had a depiction of that somewhere.
