On the Formation of Refuge from Drought (2011)Pencils and pen on paper by Anthony Martin. Stylized depiction of an earthworm aestivation chamber lined by pellets and with burrow connecting to chamber, meant to keep an earthworm moist during a drought; overall form and architecture based on fossil and modern examples of earthworm chambers.
Parasitoid: In Rocks, No One Can Hear You Scream (2011)Crayons on paper by Anthony Martin. Based on fossil cocoons from the Late Cretaceous (75 million years ago) of Montana, and trace fossils in those cocoons (smaller cocoons, exit holes, and burrows) indicating parasitoid insects preyed on the hosts, but also is meant as a nod to the Alien movie series. 
Descent with Modification (2011)Pencils and pen on paper by Anthony Martin. Schematic of a typical crustacean burrow system, with a pelleted burrow mound above and branching burrow system below, but branching also reflects evolutionary relationships of the burrowing crustaceans depicted, which are (left to right) ghost shrimp, mud shrimp, ghost crab, lobster, and crayfish.
