Yes, thank you this is my best resource as of yet, I have this book and
have gone through it prior to this note. It is a great book!! I am still
needing more information. (For what I am doing I also need more than one
reference). Specifically, something that would support the fact that many
scientists do not posses the drawing skills they need inorder to produce
documentation for their research.
If anyone out there has any more ideas, please send them to me. Articles
that specifically blend art and science would be a starting point. With an
emphasis concerning the need for art in science.
