Scientific illustration workshop

During Easter (2017) I joined the scientific illustration workshop organized by Illustraciencia in the Natural Sciences Museum of Madrid.

We had one week of theory and practice with Clara Cerviño, the teacher, and Miquel Baidal, the founder of Illustraciencia. Check out Clara’s website (she is very talented!) and Illustraciencia website as well.

We addressed the process of drawing a scientific illustration, which are the best practices at each step, and how to choose the right technique for each commission.

 

 

Botanical illustration workshop

Last weekend (in April 2017) was all about learning plant textures with Isik Guner in a two-day workshop held in the Historical Botanical Garden in Barcelona.

If you don’t know Isik yet, please check out her website here. Her skills are stunning!

Learning the craft of the trade at such a refined level needs a hefty amount of hours. Fortunately, the learning process is part of the fun.
