The Celestial Goldfish (Carassius auratus) by scientific illustrator Emily S. Damstra appeared this week in a post on Symbiartic called, How Do Artists Protect Their Work Online, along with Damstra’s thoughts about scientific illustrators respecting their own discipline. This fun, lively, accurate fish was created by Damstra with colored pencil. Emily Damstra is a member of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators (GNSI), president and founder of the Southern Ontario Nature and Science Illustrators (SONSI) group.
