The Building Blocks of Life microscope afe poster artists for education nucleus illustration biology mitochondria anatomy cells science

Here's a close up of my illustration of a plant cell vs. animal cell created for @Brad Woodard's poster project, "Artists for Education." This awesome initiative will provide teachers with posters for their classrooms that not only inform but also inspire learning and creativity.

I remember when I created model cells out of cinnamon rolls and Twizzlers back in 7th grade. It was fun to once again take something very organic and complex and try to convey it in simple forms and shapes.

Attached is the "" screenshot I'm submitting for approval. Take a peek to find out if you still remember your organelles!

Stay tuned for other super talented artists' submissions in the coming weeks. In the meantime, follow on the following cybers:

And always remember, "the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell."
