I find myself attracted to an odd color scheme: Brown, orange, lime green, and pink. You might notice this color scheme from the blog you are currently reading! I think this combination first appeared in a poster I made for a conference of the American Society of Limnology and Oceanography back when I was a graduate student:

This poster was for my graduate master's thesis on the dissolution of biogenic silica in the North Pacific. The doo-hicky in the middle picture is a hydride generator. We would inject seawater into this vessel and run it in a gaseous form through an mass spectrometer to measure germanium isotopes in the seawater. Thinking back, I'm pretty impressed that I did all this gnarly research! Now I just want to make puppets and goofy songs. I much prefer the latter.
