My Tracks of an Oak Killer illustration was published on the cover of the USDA Forest Service's Proceedings of the Sudden Oak Death Fifth Science Symposium! See it here: www.fs.fed.us/psw/publications…
Also, I've been published in Scientific American! I illustrated 3 bees to appear on an infographic, which you can view here: www.scientificamerican.com/art… or look for it on pg 88 of the Dec 2013 issue!
Also, I've joined the Medical Illustration Sourcebook, where you can see more portfolio works by me here: medillsb.com/ArtistPortfolioTh…
Hi! I just found one of your pieces, took a look through your gallery (which is amazing) and saw this journal. I really love to do biological illustrations, I haven't been to school for it, but do you have any recommendations how to get into these types of magazines? Congratulations as well
Oh, thank you so much! I'm my case, I was contacted by these people directly. I went to the Science Illustration graduate program at CSUMB: scienceillustration.org/ So it helps to be known by fellow professionals. I would say, keep making awesome art to grab the attention of the people you want to see them! Good luck!
Thanks very much! How crazy, I used to live in the Bay Area and this place was right there. Can I be personal and ask how much the year cost you? I had no idea they had programs like this.
Yes, there are very few programs like this, but they exist and students come from all over the world, and at any age! Only 15 are chosen per class, with 3 instructors plus TAs. My family supported me, and it was over a year ago, but it was around $20,000 or so, split into separate payments per quarter (like $6000-$8000 a pop.)
Congrats! You are so incredibly talented that this was only a matter of time.
Congratulations! Your work is wonderful! Keep it up!
That's awesome! Congratulations Nyshie!
You must be thrilled!
Thanks Kitten! I'm glad to hear from you! I am super happy yep! :3
