The Medical Illustrations of Amie Fernandez #ArtTuesday
Amie Fernandez began with a love for science. Then, inspired by her artist sister, Fernandez brought art and science together in her current career: medical illustration. Here’s more from Art the Science:
A piece I would like to highlight is Skin Cancer Presentation in Dark Skin, which was one of my projects at the University of Dundee. This piece means a lot to me because it highlights the importance of recognising skin cancer in Black and brown patients, which is often misdiagnosed, and sometimes a true diagnosis is reached when the cancer is at a later stage.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
