"For some conditions you’ll also see high-quality illustrations from licensed medical illustrators." 

Fantastic news. Will efforts be made to include proper artist attribution + link to the licensed medical art that will appear? 

This is potentially a great boon or unwelcome thorn for professional medical illustrators licensed by organizations such as the +AMI HQ, depending on the quality of image attribution.

Awesome. Great to hear that Google is actually commissioning new content for this.

As a response to the effusive Columbia Journalism Review article earlier this week about I F^cking Love Science, +nadia drake has published this superb article on Knight Science Journalism Tracker. (Disclosure, I'm quoted a couple of times.)

What I am really happy about are the discussions happening on Twitter about it right now. If image attribution and permission matter to you in science communication, I think everyone in this community could really do some good - comment on the articles, insert yourself in Twitter conversations - and say what you believe as an illustrator, blogger, writer. Not all of us have the same opinions on copyright, so a variety of voices is a healthy thing.

There are a few of these feeds that drive me crazy with their 'not-quite-right' memes of information or errors that are rarely corrected but are passed of as science or fact.  Thank you for posting. - k

Artistic Discipline for 2015: Knowledge Pupates. So does creativity. My 2014 was brimming with ideas smothered in exhaustion. Looking forward to giving those creative ideas a workout in 2015.

Hey #sciart and #scicomm peeps,

There was a big shake-up announced on the Scientific American blog network today. 

Here are some details I can share. 
-Half of the blogs are being let go or leaving the network
-New guidelines for bloggers have been introduced: 
http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/scientific-american-blog-network-guidelines/ -Remaining bloggers are seeing an increase in pay
-Remaining bloggers are receiving more editorial assistance if we ask
-Departing bloggers own their posts, (they can re-post them) and they will be archived on the SciAm site

It's a big change, and I was surprised and disappointed that some specific blogs are leaving.

If you follow Symbiartic by myself, Katie McKissick and Kapi Monoyios, the good news is we are staying. The SciArt world still has a home on the network and they are keeping all of us: the fine artist, the scientific illustrator and the cartoonist. We've been talking about some changes and experiments we'd like to do on Symbiartic, and we should have post up within the next couple of days talking some more about the future. 

http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/symbiartic/

If anyone has any questions about this big re-shaping of the network, feel free to ask me here, on twitter or in an email. Just remember I don't speak for the network and don't have all the answers. 

Excited for the future.

+Bruce Bartrug - thank you, I am too!
+Patrick Bednarek - yeah, we will be receiving a pay increase. It's one of the positive things about the shake-up I wish they had decided to announce . It so rarely happens in things like blogging.

Dave, I am not saying citizenship didn't exist before the net: I am saying it's the fastest way for people to educate themselves about a wide range of important current issues. It's a stepping stone to the actionable activism you describe.

But thanks for your condescension.

Story
Tagline
Art in Awe of Science. Testing the hypothesis people crave surreal scientific illustrations.
Introduction
The Flying Trilobite, my blog, is updated weekly, featuring in-process artwork and commentary.  (All artwork protected and shareable under Creative Commons Licence, see my blog for details.)

Symbiartic is the new Scientific American blog about art+science that I co-curate with scientific illustrator Kalliopi Monoyios and Katie McKissick. 

I'm a fine artist and illustrator using oil paint and digital media inspired by evolutionary biology. Much of my work is inspired by playing with ideas about fossils and organisms.

My artwork has illustrated books, magazines, museum display, blogs and tattoos, illustrating the links between science and art. I remain available for talks, freelance and contract work.
