I'm working on a presentation (to be given this friday) where I want to highlight the importance of being well science informed to do a science illustration, so I am trying to gather examples of illustrations with mistakes; not necessarily mistakes that are obvious to anyone but for example images that I could say "this bird would never fly because it's missing feathers", "it's impossible the ankle would bend that way", "this dinosaur would never have a bump there", "the leaves in that species are arranged in a spiral and not bilaterally", "that molecule doesn't exist", etc.
I wonder if you know some of such examples (I'm reachable on or off list). I have a couple of images already but would love to make them as diverse and numerous as possible. The presentation will be mostly for an art background audience and I want to make a very convincing point.
Thank you so much,
