I am more than happy, this is my first publication as an illustrator. I made this synesthetic man for a scientific article in Principia. Principia is a fantastic scientific journal that combines scientific journalism, illustration in a good design. Here, how my drawing looks in the article: Synesthesia.

Ursula Andress (1936) is known as a shell-diver Honey Ryder in Dr. No, first James Bond film. In her first scene in the movie, she rose out from the sea in a white bikini and a shell in her hand, like a modern Venus. This scene became iconic in the history of cinema.
“This bikini made me into a success. As a result of starring in Dr. No as the first Bond girl, I was given the freedom to take my pick of future roles and to become financially independent.” Ursula Andress.

“Gorillas are the largest of the great apes. A mature male may be six feet tall and weigh 400 pounds or more; his enormous arms can span eight feet. The mountain gorilla’s range is limited to a small area of lush wet forests in central Africa. There only a few thousand remain, leading a precarious existence. Part of the territory they occupy has been set aside as parkland, and, theoretically, gorillas are strictly protected. But in fact they are being pushed into ever-smaller ranges, chiefly by poachers and Batutsi herdsmen. Unless a better-planned and more-determined effort is made to save the mountain gorilla, it is doomed to extinction within the next two or three decades.” By Dian Fossey. Originally published in the January 1970 issue of National Geographic. (http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2008/07/archive/fossey-gorillas-1970/dian-fossey-text/1)
