Hi Everyone,

I'm new to this board and wanted to introduce myself. I apologize in advance
if I am overstepping or anything...I'm not quite sure of the rules yet!
Anyway, my name is Laura and I'm currently a biology student, trying to
figure out what to do with the degree once I complete it. I've just learned
about biological illustrators, and I'm very me, it sounds
like a perfect marriage of science and creativity. As someone just exploring
this field, I'm wondering if any of you have any advice you'd like to share.
Would a minor in Art and a major in biology suffice for a job like this, or
is an advanced degree needed? Are these types of jobs extremely difficult to
find? I'll be happy with any information you care to share.

Thanks, everyone!
