Our three-person, Seattle-based team of natural science illustrators, educators, and software developers received a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to create an interactive, art-based engagement platform for kids to explore science.
We're making scientific sketching the foundation of all of our activities. We're putting out a call to fellow scientific illustrators to submit animal anatomy layers to our little startup. We're offering a $100 honorarium for each complete set of assets – outer layer, musculature, and skeleton – for non-exclusive rights to use on our website. We'll create outlines based on the skin layer of each animal for kids to draw in, and they'll be able to "x-ray" their own drawings to reveal the skeleton and musculature you've drawn.
We'd also love a little blurb/artist note about how you went about drawing the specific animal, as a way of showing kids the different ways artists approach their artmaking. Our hope, as we collect a library of illustrated animals from a diverse team of scientific illustrators, is that kids can see themselves in the representation of a large community from people all over the world.
If you're interested or have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out.
Thanks so much for your consideration!
