SciArt is a real term, and its practitioners tend to be trained scientists. Diogo Guerra trained as a veterinarian on the way to becoming a medical illustrator. Here’s more from Art the Science:
I have concluded my Master’s in Veterinary Medicine in Lisbon, Portugal, and worked some years as a researcher in veterinary parasitology in Zürich, Switzerland. So, a lot of my expertise (and therefore illustration projects) relate to animal anatomy and pathology, as well as parasitology, microbiology, and epidemiology. One of the joys of being a medical illustrator with my particular background is how you can keep expanding your knowledge, sometimes on topics you had already covered in university, and staying on trend with what’s happening in the world. As an example, throughout the years I have collaborated on multiple illustration projects related to communicating drug development and clinical trials, which have never been so relevant given the current pandemic.
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.
