The Pitiful Human Lizard has Arrived

HUmanLizard-promomini

Toronto’s newest superhero accidentally trashes the Royal Ontario Museum. And although the ROM is my favourite place in Toronto, I enjoyed every page turning moment. Here are some pages from the successfully-funded Kickstarter for Jason Loo’s The Pitiful Human Lizard: No!!! Not the Platycarpus coryphaeus! As a kid I spent hours one birthday hanging out [...]

Trilobite Boy by Eric Orchard

TrilobiteBoy-Eric_Orchard-m

Several years ago I painted a half-human, half-trilobite  hybrid in the style of a Minotaur. I’ve always been fascinated with the blended animals and humans from mythology (that’s where my Flying Trilobite handle comes from)  and trying out ideas with organisms that scientific discovery has revealed to us, everything from dinosaurs to microbes. I took [...]

A Mosaic of September SciArt Glory

13-044FEATURE

How many times do you have to do something before it is considered tradition? Last year, Glendon had the excellent idea to post a different #sciart image each day in the month of September. This year, we did it again and called it a blitz. In case you missed anything, here is a handy recap. [...]

Cartozia Tales: a Comic about Maps Made by Escaping Geography

Cartozia-LeahPalmerPreiss-m

Part of the purpose here on Symbiartic is to put forth ideas about how science communication can learn from art, the way art is increasingly informed by science.

Cover art to Avengers #12. Art by Dustin Weaver, colours by Justin Ponsor. Avengers © Marvel Comics. Comic books, contrary to popular belief do not ignore science to come up with the fantastic abilities characters have. They extrapolate, exaggerate and play make-believe with science, but this stems from scientific literacy. This cover by Dustin Weaver [...]

SciArt of the Day: Blood of a Hero

DD2011018COV-PaoloRivera-mi

  Artist Paolo Rivera captures the blood of superhero Daredevil, the blind vigilante with superhuman senses, in much the way his radar-sense must detect the pulsing network within his own body. Yeah, yeah- the horns are his costume, and so wouldn’t have blood vessels. That’s the type of artistic licence that makes a science-art image more [...]

SciArt of the Day: Night Growl

sci-ence-tigers-mini

A well done science comic is one of the most effective ways to convey science communication. The visual hook of a narrative with lively (or in this case, sleepy) characters peppered with the facts creates a flow that a wall of text can’t match. This comic by Maki Naro of Sci-ənce is a perfect example. [...]

MaxKlinger-Seizuremini

The great Symbolist draughtsman Max Klinger created this image as one of ten in a narrative series of etchings called, Paraphrase on the Discovery of a Glove, which follows the dreamy travels of a single lost glove. This second-last panel, The Seizure is remarkable in a couple of ways. Symbolists, like their artistic descendants the [...]
