Hi all,

I am relatively new to GNSI, but I posted a request in July for 
advice about making a transition from a purely scientific career to 
one in science illustration, and received really fantastic advice and 
encouragement.  Thanks again!  Now I am hoping I might get some 
advice about my website:

I wonder if I have erred on the side of showing too much work 
indiscriminately, and whether I should just choose a selection of the 
better work.  And about the work itself, I have enrolled in UCSD 
evening extension classes in intermediate drawing and also an intro 
to illustration.  Does this seem a reasonable next step?  I am still 
doing science full-time, so I really want to make the best use of my 
evening hours as possible to move toward an eventual illustration 

Any other comments and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance,
