Science Illustrator Nicolle Fuller shows how art can help visualize the future, explain the invisible, and portray cosmic findings.
Fuller runs the US-based science communication agency SayoStudio. With its team of science-loving artists, SayoStudio provides award-winning science animation, illustration, and design to help visualize scientific concepts in a way that captures attention and gets important details across.
She notes there are many uses for the work of science illustrators that many people may not immediately recognize. In fact, scientific artworks appear harmoniously in nature parks, zoos, textbooks, and science publications.
“It’s a great way to bridge the divide between people who are scientists and people who might not know as much but are interested, or maybe people who weren’t interested and are now going to get a little more curious,” she says.
If choosing science illustrating as a career, Fuller suggests it might be helpful to focus on getting a science background first and then brushing up on art skills second. This approach, she finds, can be beneficial in the field.
In the latest episode of the Crick Crack Science Live Show Fuller shows examples from SayoStudio’s gallery that help visualize the future of work, the possible effects of plastic pollution, the intricate workings of a cell, the formations of earth-like planets, black holes colliding, and more.

UpComms PR announced today that it has joined the list of NIHERST content partners to provide science content at Sci-TechKnoFest 2.0
On showcase are the Crick Crack Science Podcast series “Bats of Bat Island,” and pre-recorded episodes from the Crick Crack Science Live Show featuring women in science: zoologist Amy Deacon, translational scientist Nikesha Gilmore, and US-based science illustrator Nicolle R. Fuller. The episodes discuss topics such as biodiversity, women and girls in science, cancer research, and art and science as a career.
According to festival organisers, the hybrid event, with its mix of online and in-person experiences “promises to bring greater public awareness and understanding of advancements in science, technology, and innovation, its impact on our everyday life and well-being, and its vital role in promoting economic prosperity, social progress, and environmental sustainability.”
UpComms PR founder Valene Mc Dougall says, “we are very proud and excited to collaborate with NIHERST in one of—if not—the largest science festivals in the Caribbean region.”
From virtual workshops to science talks and in-person experiences, there’s so much to do and see at Sci-TechKnoFest 2.0. The festival is FREE of charge and caters to all, from preschoolers to older adults. To learn more visit www.scitechknofest.org. (Attendees may also register here.)
