My Favorite Illustrators

Illustrations are a great way to communicate science. From fine art to comics and cartoons they can bring awareness and/or explain concepts. 

Social media platforms such as instagram provide a channel that is easy to use and anyone can share their art. I keep discovering amazing illustrators everyday!  Below are some of my favorite illustrators, artists and designers that create biology related illustrations.

Artists

Pedromics

Pedromics has some very cool cartoons about immunology and academia. Here I have put a few of my favorite ones but make sure to check out his Pedromics facebook page to see them all.
