The Blue Sea Slug (Glaucus atlanticus) can measure up to 3 cm and lives in the open ocean, in temperate and tropical waters all over the world. Anni was very much intrigued by this creature’s beauty and complex deadliness: it devours Portuguese man o’wars, and not only absorbs its prey’s venom, it concentrates it, so a sting by a slug is even more dangerous than one by a Portuguese man o’war.

The color pencils used for this work are Derwent, and the paper is acid-free, 180g Canson.
