No Bones about it

Greetings, fellow followers! It has been awhile since I’ve put up a new blogpost and here’s why: a. I just got done with my second major Anatomy exam b. I have been busy on projects (soon to come) and c. I have been researching possible career specialties. The latter leads me to my new post. Lately I have been seriously looking into the field of forensics and archaeology as a subset of my biomedical visualization career. I have always been interested in the field of archaeology and this seems fitting for my interests. However, I may or may not have to go on for further education if i decide to go this route (yay more school!!….) Anyways, I have included a link to a very successful forensic artist, Karen Taylor:

  1. Hi Kristina (and her followers),

    I happened across your blog and was so pleased to see that you have found my website of value/interest. The most current case work is on my Facebook page called Facial Images.

    I DON’T want to sound like a commercial, but decided to mention a couple of things.
    I am teaching a workshop in composite drawing in April, 2011 at the Scottsdale Artist School in Arizona. http://scottsdaleartschool.org/adult/workshop/id/60/levelid/3
    I am always delighted to see new face specialists who come into the field from the direction of bio-medical illustration and imaging. In a perfect world, ALL forensic artists would have that kind of solid anatomical foundation.

    You may be aware that I did a forensic art textbook a few years ago, Forensic Art and Illustration. I am now just completing my second book. It’s called The Artist’s Guide to Understanding the Human Face and will be a sort of nuts and bolts reference for all artists who deal with faces…with various applications. After it is released, I plan to offer some new workshops related to the book’s content.

    In today’s world, there is an ever-increasing need for individuals who are skilled in understanding the face. Biometrics and facial recognition systems, though huge advances in fighting crime and terrorism, STILL require trained human users. I am a member of a scientific working group that has a website which could give you some insights about that. http://www.fiswg.org

    So, all the best to you and all the young people who are learning more about faces!

    Regards,
