In the surreal scientific illustrations of Glendon Mellow, human bodies merge with those of our ancient ancestors - like trilobites and dimetrodons. The ancient Cretaceous oceans glow with a strange light, and dinosaur skulls are gorgeous. Take a look.
Mellow is a Canadian artist who does science-themed illustrations for books and the web. Why hasn't James Cameron hired this guy to help with concept art on the Avatar sequels? This is just a taste of the awesome weirdness - you can view more of Mellow's work on his blog.
