How to become a Scientific Illustrator? 🔬🎨🖌️
I receive this question almost every day. Below is some information and tips on how to become a scientific illustrator! Ask me any questions in the comments!
#illustration #sciart #career #phd #phdlife Image
1) Develop your artistic skills: Scientific illustration is a highly specialized field, and it requires a high level of skill in illustration, drawing, and design. Take classes in art, drawing, and graphic design to develop your skills.
2) Learn about the scientific subject matter: Scientific illustrators need to have a deep understanding of the scientific concepts they are illustrating. Take courses in the sciences, such as biology, physics, or chemistry, to gain a solid foundation in the subject matter.

How To Use #DreamStudio #StableDiffusion To Create A Traditional Illustration.

(A micro micro micro documentary with an all-caps title to make it look impressive)

Let's start with the finished illustration (you'll want to zoom in on it, so click and read the small print):

After 1-2 hours of generating terrible concepts, I finally landed on the idea of a cat reading books on how do cat stuff, including manipulating humans. Fun! Started with maybe 30 "cats in chairs" renders in #stablediffusion to get ideas:
I liked the cat face in the first one, but would need to hand edit the body to add a book so we could see the title. Then I decided I wanted him on a couch, not chair, to make seeing his pile of books easier. But first I edited the prompt to give me library ideas:

Une expérience qui permet d'illustrer (mais pas de démontrer en elle-même) une donnée scientifique contre-intuitive : un sol sec absorbe moins bien l'eau qu'un sol humide. Explications dans ce thread 🔽 (1/9) #sol #climat #hydrologieregenerative #secheresse #eau #agriculture
Cette expérience a été menée il y a quelques jours dans le jardin de l'Université de Reading, au Royaume-Uni. En tant que telle elle n'a pas une grande valeur scientifique, mais elle permet d'illustrer de façon simple la complexité de la notion de perméabilité d'un sol. (2/9)
Si nous souhaitons disposer de + d'eau dans les nappes phréatiques, les cours d'eau et limiter nos besoins en pompage, nous devons concentrer tous nos efforts sur un point : infiltrer l'eau de pluie là où elle tombe, et ralentir le + possible son temps de retour à la mer. (3/9)

Ooh, it's the 213th birthday of #EdgarAllenPoe. Which means it's a great time to share these Poe-inspired drawings I did a few years back. I read a Poe story a night, and did an #illustration the next day.

First up: "The Tell-Tale Heart"

Here's an #illustration of my favorite #EdgarAllanPoe short story, "The Cask of Amontillado"

The #illustration I did for #EdgarAllenPoe's "The Masque of the Red Death" was probably my favorite of the series.

Humanity has but three great enemies: fever, famine and war; of these, by far the greatest, by far the most terrible, is fever. -Sir William Osler

That’s why temperature is one of the “vital signs” (not pain🤨) Image
So if you have ever wondered how body controls🌡 & never got an answer beyond - somewhere in 🧠hypothalamus; here’s an explanation.
🤕 is admitted H&H 4 SAH + IVH. This is the temp📈-shows, patient started spiking 🌡@ 24hrs & peaked ~72hrs. Cultures ⏲ ABX started on admission. Image
38.3 C = magic number for most of us to trigger “pan-culture” + “broad spectrum ABX” to fight off infection.

Does every fever needs to be addressed with ABX?? - probably not.

This is a #MedTwitter about Central fever aka neurogenic fever. From basics to treatment approaches.

Luboš Plný is a Czech painter and conceptual artist, usually classified as a creator of art brut ("raw art" or "rough art"), a label created by French artist Jean Dubuffet to describe art created outside the boundaries of official culture.
Plný is fascinated by medical iconography. An expert in the mysteries of anatomy, he devotes himself – when not drawing – to all sorts of performances where he confronts the limits of pain, which he experiences as an act of purification, transforming suffering into artistic work.
He incorporates organic materials, photographs from 19th century atlases, pictures of anatomical wax models, and clippings of models from fashion magazines in his work. These images form the foundation for his graphical compositions.

Indian cities are not typically imagined to be biodiversity hotspots. Aspects of urban ecology often get missed in public conversations about the city.

Every artwork has elements of household and construction waste that the artist found in her neighbourhood in Bengaluru. Look closely and see if you can spot them!
