Inspiring illustrations of the marine world

The last few weeks have been pretty busy- working and commissions-wise (expect an update on these later in the week)- hence the lack of posts! As always when working on other things, many more ideas spring to mind for the next project…I will need to start keeping track of these ideas for the times when I am less busy!

Anyway, instead of posting stuff I’ve been working on, I thought I would write about an amazingly talented scientific illustrator, Amadeo Bachar, who I read about through this very interesting interview on Deep Sea News. I love biological illustration and one day I hope to be able to work in this field. Amadeo Bachar has a Bachelors degree in Marine Biology and a Masters Certificate in Scientific Illustration, and he now teaches at California State University in the Scientific Illustration program and is a freelance illustrator.

So- go and read the interview to find out more, and I also highly recommend watching this video on the process of creating this beautiful illustration of yellowtail fish in watercolour, if you too love scientific illustration!

check out his website here.

Tell me- do you have any videos of illustrators working on art that you find inspiring?? I would love to know!

Enjoy the end of the week- I will hopefully not leave it too long before I post again!
