Back in March I posted a sketchbook page of imagined Antarctic life forms. Here's a new generation of undiscovered microorganisms with added whimsy.

I'm happy to announce its inclusion in CUTTERS: An Exhibition of International Collage curated by James Gallagher, opening Friday October 16 at Cinders Gallery in Brooklyn.
