Thanks for sharing! I'm a collections manager for an herbarium and illustrated glossaries can be so incredibly useful when it comes to botanical terms. I've shared it on social media!

Yes, they were all done digitally so it would be easier to make changes as needed (and there were a lot of them!). They were an update on the glossary in Plants of the Chicago Region.  I had been asked to add some new illustrations to the existing ones but my style is so different from that of the previous illustrator (and no one knew where the original art was) we decided it was best to redo all of them. I was also able to ‘borrow’ some illustrations I had done for previous Field Museum guides, so that helped a bit. It took eight months, because of Covid and various issues not on my end.  At my suggestion, two new pages were added - the cryptogams and the floral morphology variations/cutaways. My base was Morton Arboretum and Field Museum herbarium specimens that I rendered in PS, plus lots of discussion with the senior author about needed changes from the previous version. I had taken a scientific illustration class with Marlene Hill Donnelly at the Arboretum that taught us how to visualize flat things in 3D, thank heaven! 

When the new Flora of the Chicago Region was published three years ago the decision was made not to include illustrations but there was pressure to add them for any future digital edition. A Spanish translation is being worked on, I believe? 

We found one typo, which will be corrected soon - there is an entire workflow just to making changes: me>publisher>compositor>publisher>CRI director>webmaster :O  If anyone sees anything else, please let me know? I thought I had caught all of them but this one (at least) escaped me (misspelling on elaiosome) and a friend of mine caught it.

Thanks,

Kathy

Outstanding! So clear and easy to understand, and the art is fabulous.  Did you use Photoshop to make these?   I would love to hear your workflow.

Thank you! Please feel free to share with friends, colleagues, students - that’s what we did it for, to have all these terms clearly illustrated and in one place for everyone to use. At some point there will be a version in Spanish as well, hopefully by the end of the year. <3
