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.
