Science Illustration as a career?
I will be entering my senior year at university in OH. I am going to graduate with a bachelor of science degree in biochemistry in 2013. I used to be a studio art minor my freshman year because I have always enjoyed art. My mother helped me discover my talent when I was 9 years old and I have explored it ever since. I then developed an interest in science when I was exposed to it in high school. For some time I believed that I wanted to go to med school and for another, graduate school in the field. I have a lot of appreciation for science but art has been an integral part of my life and I am having difficulty choosing a career in just science without also integrating the artistic side of me. I heard about scientific illustration before but I have not been able to talk to anyone who has first hand experience with it. It sounds very interesting and it has really drawn me in.
I hope to learn more about the field. Thank you very much for your time.
