The digital illustrations are proof of Keller’s meticulous approach and a spotlight to anatomical element, and every bit highlights an enormous array of marine life, with dozens of species of octopuses, jellyfish, and different sea creatures congregating in dense crowds—she additionally pairs each work with a key to simply establish every specimen.

Made in collaboration with PangeaSeed Basis, a nonprofit working towards ocean conservation by artwork, the collection is the results of in-depth analysis, Keller says, and he or she typically references organizations just like the Monterey Bay Aquarium Analysis Institute and the Schmidt Ocean Institute to concentrate on the species most in danger.

One thing that’s positively difficult about tackling marine topics is that we merely don’t perceive ocean life as intimately as life on land. With this collection, I take as a lot data as I can, and mix it with a little bit of creative license, to—hopefully!—encourage surprise for the entire unimaginable species dwelling beneath Earth’s waves.

Keller’s most up-to-date addition to the collection is “Deep Sea,” and there are nonetheless just a few of these prints accessible in the PangeaSeed store.
