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.

Indian cities are not typically imagined to be biodiversity hotspots. Aspects of urban ecology often get missed in public conversations about the city.
In a series of illustrations, we explore the different dimensions of Bengaluru's lakes.

Let's start at the very beginning...
When you read you begin with A-be-see!
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!

I'm a generalist, with a #science and #medical background, and #editorial experience. So I communicate a wide range of #scicomm topics. My superpower is turning #data into #dataviz.

Many in my field are much more specialized! I'll tweet share colleagues work in a bit!

@AnnalsOfScience just published an article I wrote with my colleague @smolinab1 as part of our research on a chronological and cosmographical Tratado composed in the New Kingdom of Granada (c.1696) 🧵(1/17)…

Under the influence of Spanish cosmography, the repertorios de los tiempos–books encompassing astronomical, agricultural, ecclesiastical, medical, and calendrical questions–incorporated cosmographical elements coming from Sacrobosco and the Theorica (3/17) Engraving of Jeronimo de Ch...

Here's a thread on how I make scientific illustrations for describing new species of invertebrates #sciencetwitter #art #science #illustration #taxonomy #teaminvert
My favorite way to learn a new group of inverts is to describe & draw a new species. You have to do all this research on known species so you learn a lot. Then you do detailed drawings that ensure you learn each structure. Hard to forget something you spent hours drawing
The end result is a series of drawings like this that show important anatomical structures that are used to identify different species #draw #science #art #scienceillustration

Bonsoir ! 👋 Merci encore pour vos nombreux retours enthousiastes & partages, hier. 😊💚 Aujourd'hui, on va parler des #compétences requises, des #contraintes & #avantages du métier (d'où la photo ci-dessous, vous allez comprendre) !

🔽🔽🔽 #sciart #scicom
On a déjà vu ces derniers jours que certaines compétences techniques sont requises dans mon métier : maîtrise des outils de création, veille #naturaliste, entraînement régulier, etc. 🖌️
Mais le métier d'#illustrateur·rice #scientifique réclame bien d'autres compétences que ce qu'on appelle trivialement "savoir #dessiner".

Bonsoir ! 😊👋 Après avoir évoqué mon parcours et proposé un tour d'horizon de mes #illustrations hier, je vais partager avec vous aujourd'hui les #coulisses de la création. C'est parti ! 📗🖍️🖌️

🔽🔽🔽 #scicom #sciart #IllustrationNaturaliste Image
Pour dessiner, j'utilise mon #critérium fétiche, dont la pointe fait 0,03 mm. ✏️ La mine est très, très (très) fragile mais elle permet un trait extrêmement précis... Et discret, ce qui est un plus, car un trait de contour trop visible peut nuire au réalisme d'un sujet ! ImageImage
Évidemment, comme je travaille chez moi, je bénéficie parfois d'un soutien moral bienvenu mais un peu... Encombrant. Regardez-moi ce face à face entre deux fauves. 😸

My mother taught us to ward off the Evil Eye by spitting. 💦

According to this #Syriac #manuscript (Or 6673) there are more hygienic ways of eliminating it, and a host of other ailments, misfortunes and generic evils. Let’s see what they are!

(Props to the Evangelists)

Let’s cut the gentle humour for... one tweet. This #manuscript was copied at the end of the 19th century by Church of the East believers in northern #Iraq. It’s part of a long tradition of prayer and medicine in the region, and it relies on a number of different belief systems.
Ok, first up is fear. St. George was not afraid when he slew the #dragon (also identified here as a Great #Monster), so why should you be? Offer him a prayer to allay distress and fears.
