Skin Microbiomes and Magazine Publications

IMG_6739.JPG

It's kind of a crazy exciting feeling to open up the mailbox and see something you drew in there. This is an illustration I made to accompany a press release from my university earlier this year, which described current research being conducted on bacterial communities on the skin, and how these change with neurodermitis (eczema). It was so much fun to read the researchers' findings, see how these bacterial communities change and how it is being researched, and to produce diagrams to communicate it.

Now, months later, the research is being covered in this issue of Wirtschaftsmagazin for dermatologists, and I'm totally thrilled to have my pictures included - not just inside the magazine accompanying the article, but on the cover! Huge thanks to Katharina Thier, the author (who I actually met last year at a several-day seminar on visual science communication), who spotted my work in the press release, and gave me the opportunity to have it included in the magazine. If you read German, find her article here!

Mice and lino

As many of you may know, I have a series of daily mouseventures and misadventures going on over at The Mouse Tales, and thought that my little troublesome mice would be a perfect subject for some more practice with lino!

Since I've kept the mouse pair apart and searching for each other for the better part of 2018 thus far, I thought it was only fair to reunite them for this lino print, doing their very favourite thing, which is dancing.

Cutie patooties.

I am starting to think about making mouse merchandise available during the second half of this year. Lino prints, cards, and other stationary will very likely be part of that! Updates to follow.
