Call for Volunteers: Book Reviewers

From time to time GNSI is asked to review books that relate to science illustration. We are looking to compile a list of people to contact to conduct these reviews. What’s the catch? You need to read the book and write up your review for the Journal and the web in a timely fashion, but you get to keep the book(s) for your library! 

We have general guidelines for reviews. If you have time to read a book thoughtfully, and feel comfortable writing up your thoughts, we’d appreciate that you add your name to the list. We’ll then assign books as they come in. We will try to connect books with volunteers’ areas of interest; otherwise, we’ll do random selection so everyone has a chance to review. Please contact Gail directly at [email protected], and let her know your particular area of expertise or interest (botanical, zoological, paleo, art education, general illustration, or ...???)

Call for Volunteers: Journal of Natural Science Illustration

The JNSI editorial staff could use some assistance gathering special topic articles and ongoing help with article collection!

We are looking for artists and scientists to present at the 2012 GNSI Annual Conference, July 8-14, Savannah, Georgia.

If you have a great idea for the conference, email Cat Wilson - [email protected]om by January 15th. Please include a title, short description of your idea and which of the follow niches you want to participate in:

  • Technique showcase (two hours) – Demonstrations of your techniques & tools.
  • Presentations  (~one hour) – Speak about a topic that you are passionate about. For example, a recent project, techniques & methods for working, history of illustration/profile of an inspirational figure from art or science history, business skills & marketing, research methods, connections between education, science and art, etc.
  • Workshops (1/2 day, 1 day or even 2) – Both art or science-based workshops are welcome.

  • NEW! Portfolio Reviewers (1 or 2 hours) – We are looking to incorporate portfolio reviews in the conference. Each review will be twenty minutes so you would commit to review six portfolios.
  • NEW! Contract Panel – We are looking to help GNSI members understand and have access to contract language and clauses. A first step would be a panel discussion. If you have a successful contract model, or experience negotiating contracts, consider sharing your expertise.
