Copyright Issue

A Sea snail is talking to a jewelry maker. Let me translate it into one of the human languages.
He/She said: "If you want to use my shell for your necklace production when I am dead, you have to pay for the copyright[1], say, 15 planktons a day....."

[1] Copyright for the unique copy of shell generated from a unique combination of genes.

AES for Cats

There are lots of mice, with identical weight but each with different taste, running from cathode (cage) to the sample (cheese). These mice, after a good or bad meal, will run along the trajectory in the cylinder and go out of the exit to the detector (Cat).
Suppose the cheese is large enough to provide for all the running mice. In fact the mice can only consume the surface of it.
The cat then weighs each mouse, of course eat some, and make a graph of Taste(Energy)-Weight increment(counts). This graph contains the information of the sample (cheese) surface.

This is a schematic illustration of a cylindrical mirror electron Auger-spectrometer found in a surface science book for cats, in the chapter about Auger electron spectroscopy (AES).

Organic Restaurant

This a very environment-friendly organic restaurant.
A snail is hired here as a decoration. Its job is to be here and have fun.

I would like to set the background to Japan since Japanese people are quite nice to environment in my opinion.
This is a collaboration with my excellent then-boy friend. It was found on a scratch paper date back to the summer of last year.
Now its time for cartoons again

Dancer fossil

I thought about making a figure like this after shower when listening to Tommy February6. I made this drawing when was listening to Discovery by Daft Punk so it turned out to be a little different from the original idea. 
I enjoy turning audio entities into visual ones.

Luxurious update

This handsome and tough looking bird is a New Zealand robin (if I remembered right). He is so very good at posing that he should be the cover bird of "VOGUE AVIAN"

Thanx to David Attenborough and the interesting BBC documentary "The life of birds", especially the cameraman who is very important but always ignored by the audience (just like the air).

This is a kiwi who lives in New Zealand and have abandoned flying a long time ago so it looks like a fury ball with a bird head and 2 legs. It is now "looking" for food at night, we should better say it is smelling for food because of its sensitive nose and poor eyesight.

This is an Australian frilled lizard. "When it is threatened by its enemies, it responds by spreading the giant frill it has around its neck. But if that doesn't scare them off--
it runs away on its hind legs."
--David Attenborough
This scene was very funny, looks like a sneaky python silly walk.
Warning: Their hands can be very far from reality
