The pilot illustration done for a contest submission. “Project Proteus” is a fictitonal genetic modification program for adapting a human being to amphibious lifestyle: comfortable both on the land and in the sea. Complete with biochemical adaptations for deep diving and holding breath for minutes, half-human and half-dolphin skin, extensible fins on the limbs and body trunk, and even biolights borrowed from the “magic lamp” squid, this man courses the ocean.
