Scientific Illustration 101: How to Draw a Leaf

Introduction to Scientific Illustration for Students

scientific illustration step by step
I was invited by a good friend of mine from college to be a guest speaker for a group of students in Arkansas. The talk will be about “Combining Science and Art for a Career in Medical & Scientific Illustration”. As a part of the talk, we are planning on a drawing exercise to draw some leaves. What perfect timing! We have plenty of leaves just steps from our place. So, Here it is, how to draw a mulberry leaf (and the fruit).

I’ll be adding more info to this post as we shape up the talk, so stay tuned! If you haven’t already, consider subscribing to our blog or liking us on facebook.

    Thank you so much for a wonderful talk! I’ve heard from the natural science students who attended that it was both entertaining and informative. They especially liked the personal elements. I thought the elements of your story about how you persisted in the face of obstacles were excellent for the students to hear. The visual arts faculty have also spoken to their students who attended, and told me that they all found you talk really enjoyable and informative. If I come back as faculty here in future years, we should definitely make it a regular thing!
