I love chemistry, especially organic chemistry. Drew this methane molecule because methane is the first compound we study in this discipline (my primary education is a pharmacist). And, to be honest, because I love drawing these shapes. Atomic orbitals represent all possible places of the electrons in space. That is what the dots stand for. And I like adding dots everywhere, too. This design is also related to environmental issues, because methane is one of the gases which contribute to the Greenhouse Effect.
Created methane molecules pattern this week. It’s a geek illustration with a hint of environmentalism. Made it because human farts are 7 percent methane and this gas is one of the greenhouse gasses. Cows have a much bigger impact than humans, though – farts, mostly burp – it’s a lot of methane. So it’s just a fun chemistry design. Shows my favorite sp³ hybridization between carbon and hydrogen atomic orbitals. See this illustration and products with it at Redbubble and Society6. Here are some of the products at my Society6 store: Continue reading Methane molecules and clouds pattern
