Trilobites in Art

Once more into the breach, my friends!  Here, with less then 3 week until the Trilobite Gallery goes live, it's time for ART Evolved to showcase the work of professional artists and their take on our arthropod friends.


Here is a small overview of with Trilobites in Art!

I have not tried to name the specific trilobite genus or orders, as I honestly don't know them and would probably just embarrass myself!  If anyone feels the need, be my guest and label them in the comments section.

For a fantastic source on trilobite orders and inspiration, check out Sam Gon III's great website!

I've attempted to pull together artists using different mediums (traditional paint, CG, sculpture, etc), which probably indicates my own definitions of palaeo-art (coming soon!)  

Hopefully, these wonderful pieces inspire you to create your own wonderful trilobites, which will soon be scuttling out of the July's Trilobite Time Capsule!

Send in your trilobite art to artevolved@gmail.com!
