Life finds a foothold

These images were made in response to the phrase ‘Life finds a foothold’, I came across this wording when rummaging through ephemera that I’d bought in an auction  and used it as a point of interest, in this collection of drawings I tried to illustrate the tenacity of life in all its forms to survive through adversity.

Amongst these images is one called Skeletons this is drawn on National geographic envelope from the 1960s which I bought in an online auction, the image shows skeletons of tiny microorganisms magnified millions of times. These skeletons were collected from the Pacific ocean floor allowing Palaeontologists to date parts of the sea bed to 125 million years old.
