Edit: Flipped the image so that the DNA Helix was the right chirality (Chemists were getting on my case about it).

Great artwork. Society6 should offer standard loose comfort fitting t-shirts not only "fitted", which are just too tight fitting and going a size larger is not the answer. I won't purchase any more t-shirts because of the fit.

Amazing art- any chance it will be offered as a shower curtain?

There should be only 10 to 10.5 nucleotides per turn of the helix, I counted around 14.

Hey Lucas, I used reference for the DNA, but it's not meant to be an exact replica of the structure of DNA, just an interpretation. After the whole chirality debate, I've had people complain about the major and minor grooves, the angle, that the strands should be facing the opposite way, that I haven't defined the sugar-phosphate backbone or nucleotides enough etc.

If I added all of those things in, well, it would be a picture of DNA, not a tree that's meant to look like a DNA helix. It may not be chemically correct but that's beside the point of the interpretation. If I wanted to draw DNA as it is, I would have drawn it as it is. I am studying Biology after all.
