I am not a scientific illustrator, but as a PhD student who is trying to incorporate science and art in my research, I enjoy the insight from this group.
Some of you may already be aware of this, so apologies if I'm repeating a topic that's been discussed - or that you're already doing - but does anyone from this group ever participate in/give presentations at science related conferences? I ask because I know I am not the only one who is interested in using art to communicate science and remember attending a couple of brief artistic presentations at past conferences that I really enjoyed.
For those who may be interested, I received an email about the upcoming conference below. Perhaps there could be a presentation or workshop given by illustrators at this or other scientific venues? One of their goals is to:
trans-disciplines collaborations (e.g., with artists, musicians,
comedians, film makers, public relations experts, social media experts,
and advertising agencies)

University of South Florida, St. Petersburg, Florida, USA
