The artist responsible for that image is the French illustrator Grandville (real name Jean-Ignace-Isidore Gérard, 1803-1847). Well worth seeking out more of his work now that you know his name!- William A. Davisonwww.recordism.comPS: Monster Brains is really great!
Thanks so much for pointing out this artist, William! I really appreciate it. Now to hunt down some more of his works.
The Dover book, "Bizarreries and Fantasies of Grandville" is brilliant, 266 illustrations. The title of this picture is "A volvox epidemic strikes the near-microscopic world of the scale insects" I once saw someone with this picture as a tattoo! Paul.
