You send us your rough sketch with each component labelled. The sketch can be a ‘pencil-paper’ drawing or an image created with an image editor, but label each component. You also need to send us a few lines about the message your image is trying to convey. For instance, if it is a signalling cascade briefly explain each component of the cascade and the end result (e.g. what it activates or deactivates).
Once we receive the required information and the rough sketch, a scientist from our team will discuss the conceptual output with the illustrator. If needed, we clarify your requirements by speaking to you. We then begin working on the first draft. We will create the draft, and send it to you for comments and any modifications that you require.
Once you have had a chance to look at the initial draft of the illustration, you send us your comments. We then go back to the drawing board and complete the scientific illustration. We will finalise and render the illustration after your approval to make it look BRILLIANT!
