SciAm Commission: fish
Infographic originally published in Scientific American Magazine, April 2017, in the article "Evolution at the Limit" By Rudiger Riesch

I illustrated 8 different species of Mexican poeciliid fishes. Using photographic reference material provided by the authors, which I then digitally rendered in Photoshop.
The phylogenetic tree and maps were completed by the commissioner and specialists at Scientific American.

This is a copy of how the infographic looked while featured in the article! Which can be viewed here:…

My Tracks of an Oak Killer illustration was published on the cover of the USDA Forest Service's Proceedings of the Sudden Oak Death Fifth Science Symposium! See it here:…

Also, I've been published in Scientific American! I illustrated 3 bees to appear on an infographic, which you can view here:… or look for it on pg 88 of the Dec 2013 issue!

Also, I've joined the Medical Illustration Sourcebook, where you can see more portfolio works by me here:…

Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
Monterey, California

Class of 2012 graduate from CSUMB's Science Illustration Program.

Also I'm a 2010 graduate at the University of California San Diego, with a B.S. in Ecology, Behavior, and Evolution (Biology). I've also minored in Interdisciplinary Computing and the Arts (ICAM).

I've had private art instruction since I was 11, and normal after school art classes before then. This was in traditional art though, and taught by a local professional in my hometown, Dante Rondo: I've had my stuff shown in a restaurant and at a local art gallery in my hometown at age 15.

In highschool I taught myself how to use photoshop since it was required at an internship I did that makes army training games. I learned a bit of 3Ds Max there too. Whee! Since then I've moved on to making more digital art instead of traditional pieces.

I love your work!
I would like to use your "Little Pumpkin" illustration for a small project. 
Can I have your permission? 

Thank you!
Hey MissNysha,

really nice work.

I'm absolutely sure, you're hearing this question about a dozen times a day but is it possible to use this picture (…) as a background for my music video(s)?

Of course I would mention your name and this side in the comment box, so a few more people will see your nice drawings - sounds good or? Is there any possibility? :) (Smile)

Keep it up!
