Celeste Byers has become an amazing artist. Back in her HTH days, Celeste contributed some beautiful sketches for the book San Diego Bay: A Story of Restoration and Exploitation. Since then she has traveled the world and along the way expressed herself using a variety of media with incredible beauty and raw natural energy. Her work has been part of a range of projects from urban garden books to the New York Times. The chimp above was done for a Times article on the NIH decision to greatly reduce the use of chimps for vaccine development and other biomedical research.
