Slightly more contagious

Following on from my previous attempt for Illustration Friday, here's a new experiment in drawing fake electron microscope images. The painting is of the T4 virus, which apparently feeds on ecoli bacteria, or something like that. I just love its other-worldly look, which shows that the microscopic world is far stranger than anything we would ever find in our own.

This one has definitely a "retro-SF" feel ; if I didn't read your comment I'd think thi was a "fifties-SF spaship" on the moon ...
Great in any case !

Haha. Actually, I was aiming for that!
Originally I was going to add in another bacterium or blood cell shining in the distance, as though it was the Earth. In the end, I couldn't get it to work the way I wanted.
Thanks for the comment!

Hello I'd love to thank you for such a terrific made forum!
I was sure this would be a perfect way to introduce myself!
To compile assets it is usually a sharp conception to start a savings or investing course of action as soon in life as possible. But don't fear if you have not thought of saving your capital until later on in life. Through honest work, that is investigating the best investment vehicles for your capital you can slowly but surely increase your funds so that it numbers to a huge amount by the period you hope to retire. Review all of the applicable asset classes from stocks to real estate as investments for your money. A smartly diversified portfolio of investments in a wide range of asset classes can make your money develop through the years.
