Poorly created SciArt

Because sometimes the pen is mightier than the keyboard 🎨

A big interest of mine away from research is art, and what better way to bridge the gap between art and science than SciArt? Despite my limited skills, I find creating small pieces of artwork to be extremely satisfying and a nice change of pace from the normal academic life.

I believe the link between science and art is extremely important. I think having an appreciation of artistic concepts improves figures in acadmeic pieces of work. Illustrations are also a great way of dissemminating information to non-specialists (and specialists) in a way that is both accessible and (hopefully) memorable. As the old adage goes, a picture paints a thousand words.

Comic style art

Comic style pieces hopefully show that not all scientists take themselves (or their research) too seriously.
