#Blog  on how I survived the terrors of doing live #botanicalillustration  at #hayonwye  festival this week.  Crikey, was I terrified...  Have you ever had to do something professionally which you KNOW is a good idea, but which is so scary it makes you feel sick?  And did it (as with me) all end up ok?  Let me know, I'd be fascinated to hear of your trials and tribulations too....

Katie Lewis uses simple materials like pins and thread to create her artworks, which are based on data she collects about her own “bodily sensations” – but she won’t tell you what sensations she’s measuring. Twinges in the back? Rumbles in the tummy,…

Hi, first time poster, long time reader! I hope this is an ok thing to post.

On June 4th I'm releasing a mobile app this group might dig called "Pose & Draw Dinosaurs". Traditional step-by-step instruction for 22 dinosaurs along with an interactive pose mode for each where you can take the basic shapes and position them however you want.

'Universal Code' A ribbon of binary code for LIFE 'embraces' a pulsing orb. This painting is inspired by reflection on code, simulation theory and more.
Code...it really has grabbed my attention. There are four recent paintings to prove it. I've written about two of them Code and Where there's Life There's... And, now Universal Code above. The fourth painting is yet to be completed. You will see it soon, here on this BLOG.

Opening Gala Tonight for The Recycled Rain Project at the Olympic Mills Bldg #Portland

Created work combining diagrams of the brain, topographic maps of the Mt Hood wilderness and a century worth of data on the melting glaciers on Mt Hood.  All made using collected rainwater from my studio rooftop. 

I am one of six featured artists who were challenged to make work only using recycled rain as part of their process. You can read more here > https://therecycledrainproject.wordpress.com/artists/

Externalize your bacteria.
Bacteria is the new black!

These 3D printed, over-sized knickers have been inspired by the human gastrointestinal tract and are designed to be full of channels for cyanobacteria and <i>E.coli</i>

But these bacteria are blue.  Kidding.  Great idea!

Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh famously cut off his own ear. Now, another artist, Diemut Strebe, has made him a new one from tissue engineered cartilage. Strebe took genetic samples from Lieuwe van Gogh, a descendant of the artist’s brother Theo van Gogh,…

'Unseen' Trying to make the unseen...seen. Inspired by an article 'Terminator Robots and AI Risk' by Meia Chita-Tegmark. She wrote about the aspect of unseen code...strings of zeros and ones. In this painting I juxtapose symbols of life...one being the age-old transcultural/religious tree-of-life and the other is binary code repeatedly expressing the word LIFE.
Like my recent painting and post Where There's Life There's... Unseen was inspired by an article Terminator Robots and AI Risk by Meia Chita-Tegmark. She is a PhD candidate at Boston University and a co-founder of the Future Of Life Institute, a research think-tank focused on mitigating ...

So that thing I’ve been working on over the last year’s worth of time?
It’s finally going to be released!

THAT’S RIGHT, FOLKS! /e kermitflail

Aetheric Worlds’ NEXUS: The Zoraidian Oracle will be available for purchase on May 22nd!

And also awesome? We’re going to be at Crypticon Seattle for the launch!

We’ll be running a contest on twitter for the event:
–> Find one of our two lovely 4'x7’ banner displays
–> take a selfie in front of it
–> tweet that picture of you with the tag ‪#‎SpeakerSelfie‬
–> find the person wearing the Speaker Of The Dead shirt
–> win something cool!

There are three chances to win an awesome shirt–the Weapons Of Mass Destruction as seen in the game!–and more chances to win game codes, cd codes–yes we have a soundtrack!–and more!

A demo of the game will be there! There’s also going to be a demo of the physical card game, Seven Courts, as well!

We’re going to have a limited edition run of art prints too!

I’ll be at the booth, along with Michelle aka samurai-ko, and we’ll have our silver/gold sharpies to sign art prints. If you’re going to be in the Seattle area, stop on by! We’ll be in the main hall of the Hilton SeaTac Convention Center.


… There’s a lot more exclamation marks here than I usually use. Just roll with me.

The TEDx talk I gave about medical illustration & scientific illustration is now available on youtube! Wowee!

We crafted this talk to help scientific illustrators explain the importance of making illustrations to your friends and colleagues who are not so familiar with this wonderful field. Hope you enjoy, and if you find it helpful, please share and help make the world of scientific illustration famous!

Centuries ago, when an artist wanted to depict an animal he hadn’t seen before, he had to rely on descriptions or travelers’ sketches. This led to the creation of many inaccurate images, perhaps the most famous of which is Dürer’s rhinoceros. Of course,…
