I am just starting my scientific illustration career. I am hoping you could give me some advice.
I have a BSc in Biology, and have already had a few commissions within my circle of connections. However, I am not sure how to get my name in the right places. I run a science blog, which has gotten some attention, though none of the employment kind. How did you find work, when you started your career?
I am also considering going to art school (especially since there seems to be a bigger job market for graphic designers than junior biologists in Vancouver, BC). I have experience with Adobe programs as well as 3D animation. From your experience, would a formal art education be more beneficial than learning from the University of Google?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated,
All the Best
