Ulisse Aldrovandi on Monster Brains

This post now resides on my other site 50 Watts:


  1. Heavens. I thought it was about time I said thank you for posting such treasures; I've been mining them for months, sighing in awe, emitting small squeaks of delight and on many occasions considering downing my brush. If you can be bothered, you can probably see the connecting threads between images you've posted and those on my blog. (http://missedconnectionsny.blogspot.com/)
    Anyway, this wasn't meant to be about me (bloody self-interested artists), it was meant to be thank YOU.

  2. Thanks Sophie! I'm glad to know someone out there is squeaking along with me.

  3. An Ungodly amount of time indeed! I did find a great variety of deformed animals and humans, many of which can be found as watercolor adaptations in my original post from last Sunday. I'll have to do another post devoted to that at a later date.

    Anyway, keep up the great work here Will!
