Andy Potts has illustrated the cover of the Natural History Museum’s magazine Evolve for a feature on sequencing the DNA of every British species – Mapping the Tree of Life. The brief was to create a collection of various creatures within a tree design that referenced the DNA helix shape. The digital illustration was a collage of 3d designed helix tree trunk, animal photography and various sky/tree imagery layered and treated in Photoshop with a magic hour palette.
