For wrapping your gifts, try The Wrap Up Project, where you will find blue, red, or green paper covered with viruses. Proceeds go to St. Mungo’s which provides assistance for homeless people in the United Kingdom.
This is just a small selection of what is out there – check out my Microbe art page for much more. Making beautiful art depicting viruses, bacteria, and other life forms is a great way to make everyone aware of the beauty of science. Please support these very special artists.
