Leioproctus fulvescens, a native colletid of New Zealand. Now that I have access to the lab’s insect collection, I can finally get reference photos to create as many illustrations as I want.
Week 46: Surgical tools | Hand Surgery, Orthopedics
Original sketches from OR sketchbook were rough: the primary focus at that point was to depict how the surgeon handles these tools and their overall shape. They were then redrawn and cleaned up in Photoshop.
**feel free to use the close-up photo I took of curved surgical scissors, needle driver, micro scissors, and surgical forceps for your own reference :)

John Lennon was a wife-beater.
There’s simply no way of disputing this: the revered icon of peace and love had a serious problem with violence against women. This has been documented all the way back to his Liverpool days, and he eventually admitted it himself later in life. His first wife Cynthia and his second, Yoko Ono, were both victims of Lennon’s brutality at one point or another, and given that most men who beat their spouses or girlfriends regularly are not particularly discriminating about the object of their violence, it’s frankly impossible that they were the only ones. It seems clear in hindsight that the gentle icon the hippies worship was actually a man with very serious psychological problems who often flew into uncontrollable fits of rage which he took out on the women in his life.
