First off, I think your blog is fantastic! But question wise, do you mind if I use some of the pictures you post as references for sketching practice? I will link the original post/your tumblr if I decide to post the sketches. Second question, how do you preserve your vertebrate specimens? For bugs we use alcohol, I was just wondering if it was similar.

Ahhh thank you for the compliment! And of course! I dont mind. Im an artist myself so i’d gladly share the wealth with others, and I’d be more than excited to see what you come up with. :)

Answering the second one. I let them rest in 10% formalin at first, and then transfer them over to alcohol too due to the health implications around formalin.
