From the Dark Ages to Infinity and Beyond: My Transition from Traditional Techniques to Digital Imaging
George Venable is a true original. He began illustrating professionally in 1959 and has had experience with nearly all media and techniques employed in the illustration field. He began as a medical illustrator while in the Navy and became a scientific illustrator when he came to the Smithsonian in 1971. During his entire career, there has also been a lot of freelance commercial art interspersed to "help pay the bills."
Twenty eight years ago, in March of 1984, George's illustration life changed and is still changing to this day, opening new venues for his interests and talent. Digital illustration using micro- and macro-photography has become a primary interest and passion. Come hear him discuss how digital illustration has affected the scientific world and our perceptions of science!
