Scientific Illustration

Clip: Season 1 | 2m 22s

Kathleen Rowland is a scientific illustrator. She draws artifacts in a way that is so precise, that the illustration itself can then be studied in place of the object. What Kathleen does may look like art, but make no mistake, there is no room for creative expression in scientific illustration. It’s meticulous, even tedious, and that's why Kathleen loves it.
