Doug McNamara’s Biodiversions

By Doug McNamara

“I’m not a field scientist, discovering new and exciting creatures for the world to see. So one way I entertain myself is to invent an organism or process and then try to draw it convincingly so it makes sense.”—Doug McNamara

Business analyst—and former biology teacher—Doug McNamara combines form and function in his exquisite line drawings of invented organisms. They are shown here, printed on a rare paper stock meant to reproduce the feel of originals, for the first time. Includes an interview with the artist by editor Tod Lippy.

Doug McNamara is a business analyst living in Brooklyn with his wife, the poet Amy McNamara, and their two children.
