Most of this work is for online delivery in e-learning modules, and so most of these master illustrations were later animated in flash. For this kind of work a clean, linear style with flat colors tends to deliver the best on screen results. Occasionally I work on a print project where a bit more flair can be put into the styling, but even there, the educational market rarely has ample budgets for complex illustrations. With a background in chemistry myself, I often go directly to the journals and write the copy for the animations that I storyboard. This use of “both sides” of my brain, is really my primary skill set as a scientific illustrator.
