Autun Purser

Deep sea ecologist / illustrator

I currently work for the Alfred Wegener Helmholz Institute for Polar and Marine Science, Bremerhaven, Germany. I generally spend several months a year at sea running the deep water camera systems for German research vessels, analysing the distribution of deep sea animals in relation to environmental change.


In addition to this I am a keen illustrator, using primarily my work as inspiration, as well as my lifelong interest in unusual fiction (i.e. science fiction, fantasy, strange fiction and awkward to characterise novels).


Please feel free to get in contact if you are interested in a commission or have a suggestion for a place for my 'FANTASTIC TRAVEL DESTINATIONS' range...
