Fossilfest at the National Museum of Natural History

FossilFest was a festival promoted by the Paleontology Department of the Smithsonian’s Natural History Museum to popularize paleontology among the public, attracting families and groups. I was there demonstrating how to use microscopes to create fossil illustrations and designed a poster about paleontological illustration. I also created the face-in-hole 6ft panels with three interchanging trilobites for children’s fun!
