  1. The illustrations are striking, but how are they related to radiation from nuclear plants ? Some questions:
    1. Where were the insects found, in relation to the nuclear plants ?
    2. Were radiation levels measured ? If so with what results ?
    3. Have similar mutations been seen in lab tests with radiation ?
    4. Could insecticides cause similar mutations ?

    • Chris–your points are well taken. I think it might be a bit much to ask an artist to think like a scientist, but you can certainly hold me to a higher standard. 🙂 I just thought it was beautiful stuff.
