Hey! @FlyingTrilobite here.
If you want to know more about #sciart and hiring a science illustrator for your #scicomm, here's a thread.
So You Want to Hire a Science Illustrator - by @FlyingTrilobite for @Symbiartic back when we were on @sciam:
What If All the Images Went Away? A look at #scicomm without visuals. It's a boring world, yo.
I've been #sciart blogging for 10 years.
Here are 13 Things I've Learned About Being a Science Artist Online:
It's vital to pick not just an on-topic image for your #scicomm, but the *right* image. Artists can help.
Over the years, I've done a lot of public speaking about the intersection of art & science.
Here's how to talk to a roomful of artists who are better than you.

It's unfortunately true that sometimes the way to turn new heads toward an issue is by RANTING.

Enjoy those links for now: I'll be back to talk about copyright vs sharing. Right now, a nice chilly bike ride in Toronto's ravine system.

As part of my project, I gave a talk at the Institut Jacques Monod about Art and Evolution
If you think about art history, there's a WHOLE lot more art about religion than there is about science.
This reflects reality! Religion has been around a lot longer than science, and the Catholic church in particular spent a ton of money on art.

I want to talk about HOW to make science comics. To do so I'm going to start by going through the Ten Simple Rules for Drawing Scientific Comics - a paper that myself, @MCeeP, and @y_bromberg wrote this year journals.plos.org/ploscompbiol/a…

Let's start! 1/n
@MCeeP @y_bromberg Rule* 1: You don't have to be. good at art. Well, what we meant is that you don't have to be traditionally good at drawing to convey the concepts you want to convey [*these are not rules - but suggestions that we thought were helpful] 2/n
@MCeeP @y_bromberg Rule 2: Comics should be simple. Most of the time the point of science comics/cartoons is that they can take complicated ideas and distill them down to an approachable - this is often the HARD part- don't create a Vennster! 3/n
