I am very pleased to have my illustrations and research on Pleistocene horses featured in the latest video by TREY the Explainer. Trey is a great researcher and does the world a service by debunking myths and sharing new discoveries in the field of paleontology on his entertaining and addictive channel. He also takes care to credit paleoartists and cite references, which is deeply appreciated and sadly more than I can say for many journalists these days. If you are interested in zoology, biology, paleontology, cryptozoology, archaeology or ancient mythology, take a moment to check out his videos and also follow him here on DA: aGentlemanScientist.
I am updating this journal to inform you that the free 6 week Natural History Illustration course is running again this year! You have three weeks left to enroll. Read below for info and links. I am happy to answer any questions about course content and workload. If you participated last year you can of course enroll again.

// Free online 6-week Natural History Illustration course //


Over the past couple of years I have been approached several times by people who have seen my scientific drawings and field sketches and wanted to know where they could also attend classes to undertake this kind of work. I am an undergrad in my final year of the Bachelor of Natural History Illustration degree at the University of Newcastle, Australia. This degree is unfortunately one-of-a-kind in the world. As far as I know, it is not possible to study natural history illustration as a full-length undergrad program at any other university (Edit: I've been informed that there are some medical, scientific and botanical undergrad programs available, see here). But there is now an opportunity for you to try a sample of this course online for free.

Starting April 4th my university is offering a FREE 6 week online introductory natural history/scientific illustration course (basically a mini taster version of the full Bachelor of Natural History Illustration degree that we do on campus). I'm not sure how long they are going to be offering these classes for free, so if you're keen to learn more about realistic wildlife, anatomical, entomological, botanical or medical illustration, want some second opinions on your work, or just want to improve your animal drawings, don't miss out on this opportunity.

The best thing about the work we do in this program is the great freedom of choice in terms of which subjects you draw. You pick the plant, you pick the animal, you pick the topic you want to research. If you're familiar with my gallery you'll know that my personal interest is in Ice Age mammals, and I've been encouraged to explore this subject in all of my projects. This program is about honing skills in your preferred field of interest to help you get prepared for freelance work or even academic pursuits.

I don't get paid to promote this course, I'm just happy to finally have an answer for those people who asked me how they can get into scientific illustration. This program will certainly give you a good taste of what it involves.

>>> Info and enrollment here


I'm sorry I don't know when the enrollment deadline is, but I suggest you sign up to receive updates so you don't miss out!

While I'm here I'd also like to shoutout YemaYema, PonyCool42, NicoleLekach, Black-Rose227 and Ari-Chand who have either completed or are currently undertaking the NHIL degree at Newcastle. Go check out their amazing galleries!
