About this campaign

PhyloPic is an online repository of freely reusable silhouette images of animals, plants, and other life forms. To date, it has amassed over 3400 images, all available under Creative Commons licenses. Help keep it going! (And get a sweet T-shirt.)

PhyloPic was created by me, Mike Keesey, to provide the world with free silhouette images of animals, plants, and other life forms, all available under Creative Commons licenses. Launched in 2011, it has steadily amassed contributions from dozens of artists. Currently it has over 3400 silhouettes.

In addition to illustrations, PhyloPic stores an evolutionary family tree of organisms. When searching for a silhouette, if the exact species isn't found, silhouettes of close relatives will still appear. This makes PhyloPic an educational resource, since the tree can be explored and used to generate diagrams of evolutionary lineages.

PhyloPic has proven useful to everyone from casual websurfers to educators to scientists. Silhouettes from PhyloPic have shown up in classrooms, scientific papers, and conferences. And, since PhyloPic provides a free programmatic interface, it has been used to augment other projects.

All work on PhyloPic is through volunteers: artists choose to donate their work to the community, and I do the web development and administration. I have also paid for the majority of the web hosting over the years.

To help with these costs, I am offering a T-shirt showing the evolution of humans from the earliest bilaterian animals ("worms"). This design, using silhouettes from PhyloPic, depicts the origins of vertebrates, tetrapods, mammals, primates, and finally us: Homo sapiens sapiens.

By buying this shirt, you will be supporting students, teachers, and researchers— that's something to be proud of. (Or, just do it because it's a pretty cool T-shirt.)

As a scientist myself, I'll likely use some of these silhouettes in my publications. Plus the t-shirt is so cool!

I love using PhyloPic in presentations, papers, and pretty much everything else I make for my research -- thank you for all your hard work.
