Spirit Magazine: Neanderthal DNA

This month an illustration of mine will be traveling the country in the seat-back pockets of Southwest Airlines. This image was commissioned by their in-flight magazine "Spirit" for a feature on the discovery of Neanderthal DNA in the human genome. According to the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, some humans have up to %4 Neanderthal DNA.
