The Diamond Sutra from the Prajñāpāramitā (“Perfection of Wisdom”) is one of the most influential Mahāyāna sutras in East Asia on anatman (not-self) and non-attachment and is the key scripture used by the Chan, or Zen in Japan, School of Buddhism to verify the state of mind of its practitioners. These beautiful paintings are fine-line renderings of Guanyin, the East Asian bodhisattva of compassion, and the Luohan (arhat) and accompany a reproduction of the sutra dated to the Qing Dynasty.

109 “Rainy Day Antelope” 2017
55 mya-present. Extant. Antilope cervicapra (Indian antelope).
And a rainy day and night as I painted this chimera, as well. Antelopes are technically Bovidae (cattle) but also share features with Cervidae (deer), highlighting the fact that current taxonomy (including binomial nomenclature) is an artificial and sometimes problematic tool when organising the diversity and messiness of life.

106 “Extinction?: Hybrid Rhinoceros with Pointy Running Shoes Determined to Survive the Struggle for Existence” 2017
56-33.9 mya-present. Extant (at the time of press). Rhinocerotidae (rhinoceros).
Yay, we’ve made to the mammals at last! Here’s a mammal that has survived for a VERY long time. Every organism alive today is the result of grandparents+ with a sharp desire to survive (and reproduce).

“100 Days of The Artist is Present” is a book I self-published about a year ago. It’s a book of 100 portraits I painted for the 100 Day Project in 2015... from photos that Marco Anelli took of the participants of Marina Abramovic’s performance “The Artist is Present”. IT’S A LONG STORY. Anyhoo, I’m poised to start approaching publishers to see if that flies- wish me luck, or if you have any advice, please send it my way! #100daysoftheartistispresent #the100dayproject #theartistispresent #marinaabramovic #portraitpainting #inkdrawing #inkpainting #artbook #artbookpublishing #balampman #yyjarts #victoriabc

105 “Twined” 2017
56-33 mya-present. Extant. Sacoglossa, a.k.a. "sap-sucking sea-slug" (here: Thuridilla lineolate, left; Berghia coerulescens, right).
“Sap-sucking sea slugs”: so there you have it. These Sacoglossa chimeras are lovingly entwined.

104 “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” 2017
56 mya-present. Extant. Lepidoptera (larval form of butterflies and moths, a.k.a. caterpillar, and sometimes also the larval form of Symphyta [sawfly] – here we have the Hyalophora cecropia giant silk moth larva representing).
Yep, it’s a chimera, all right. I had a remarkably unsuccessful google journey trying to find out which species the Very Hungry Caterpillar from the children’s book is (if it is indeed meant to be a specific species at all), so if anyone out there knows, please let me know, too.

103 “Sand Dollar Chimera on Starry Night” 2017.
56 mya-present. Extant. Clypeaster reticulatus (sea urchin, sand dollar, sea cookie, snapper biscuit, pansy shell).
The palaeontologist Mary Anning was the first to discover the ichthyosaur. Anning often sold the fossils she discovered on the beaches to collectors and is apocryphally commemorated by the tongue-twister “she sells seashells on the seashore”. I am sure Anning sold the fossils for fair prices according to the currency of the time, which likely was not sand dollars.
