Alfred Wallace

“Alfred Russel Wallace, (8 January 1823 – 7 November 1913) was a British naturalist, explorer, geographer, anthropologist and biologist. He is best known for independently proposing a theory of evolution due to natural selection that prompted Charles Darwin to publish his own theory.”

This piece was not originally started as part of my ongoing series of biologists and naturalists. It’s a commission for Toni, the woman who had my Darwin illustration tattooed on her leg. Wallace is going to be a companion piece for the other leg.

A framed print of this piece will be included with my series on display at Irvine Nature Center ( in Owings Mills, MD from May 18-July 30, 2011.
