Scientific Illustration

My interest in graphic novels, comics, information visualization and typography is big.

Ever since I was told someone *knew* a scientific illustrator I was surprised, in my ignorance, that they still existed in the same way they did a few centuries ago.

Recently I stumbled upon an interesting article about portuguese scientific illustration, and I really hope these artists get their due appreciation and that this art reborns and eliminates all the ugliness in all academic books.

Here are a few examples from Pedro Salgado and Mafalda Paiva.
