July 28, 2013: Zebrafish

Zebrafish, beginning

Zebrafish, beginnings

Playing with microscopy images of zebrafish.  A freshwater fish belonging to the minnow family, zebrafish are often used in scientific research. I love the image colors, so I’m considering several approaches and more than one piece.

Qutub Lab (http://www.qutublab.rice.edu/) has given permission to use their beautiful cell images in my artwork. I do so with gratitude for their generosity and in awe of their research efforts.

July 4, 2013: Business Card Sampler, Cell Artwork Style

Business Card Sampler

Business Card Sampler

Off to Houston in a few days for cell artwork showings at the Health Museum and the DAVinCI Visualization Wall. It will be the first time I’ve seen the art printed full size (48in by 36in) or on the Wall (cropped and downsampled to 7686px by 4326px). A bit nervous, but grateful and happy.

3D videos of Qutub Lab’s microscopy cell images will be shown on the Wall, as well as the art. Having worked with the cell images for the past six months, I’m eager to see the lab’s videos. They’ll be fascinating and exquisite.

Going forward: I now have access to microscopy images of zebrafish, striped members of the minnow family with see-through embryos. I’ll study the lab’s images before I leave for Houston and, perhaps, I’ll have some art ideas by my return.

May 25, 2013: Butterfly and the Coneflower

Out of my hands. With Butterfly and the Coneflower completed, and all eight images sent to David Miller (http://www.houstongicleeprinting.com/) to work his magic, I’m taking tomorrow off. The eyes demand it.

I created Butterfly and the Coneflower with microscopy images of blood vessel cells.

May 11, 2013: Cellspace Two

CellspaceTwo_20130511-2nd-9pm

I’ll let Cellspace Two be for a few days and then review it; until then, I can say I’ve finished one more piece. Although Two is quite different from its intended partner (image in March 7 blog), I’m hoping they’ll work together. Replacing their temporary names would be fun, too. Suggestions?

Cellspace Two is composed of microscopy images of neural progenitor cells.

May 9, 2013: Early stages, Cellspace Two

CellspaceTwo_20130509

I’ve started a partner to Cellspace One, which can be viewed in the post dated March 7. Two uses microscopy images of neural progenitor cells; One is composed of  blood vessel cell images.

I use Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator to create my cell artwork.
