A little challenge is going around social media for a few weeks: initiated by the artist Melissa Capriglione, it consists in asking suggestions of names of characters to draw with one’s own style. I proposed for you to give me examples of scientist characters in pop-culture… and here is the result! Thank you for you propositions. 😊
Do you know all of them, or are you discovering some of them? 🔬
In chemistry laboratories, outfits that leave areas of skin exposed are to be prohibited for safety reasons, notably in the event of a splash of dangerous substances. Long garments and closed shoes are therefore a requirement for the chemist’s protection. Even in the summertime, goodbye shorts and sandals! Unless…
Let me introduce a concept imaginary piece of clothing that allows to stay on top of summer fashion by showing of one’s legs without actually exposing them to chemical risk!
What would be an outfit without proper matching accessories? These nitrile gloves for feet will be in perfect harmony with any pair of sandals, flip-flops and other seasonal shoes.
Joking aside, these ideas would actually present other safety issues. For example, synthetic materials clothes are usually not recommended, as they could be dangerous in case of fire. One would also go without one of the functions of closed shoes that is to protect the foot in case of the fall of an object.
Anyway, I still had fun designing this equipment!

Here is a new “making of” video, showing the process of a watercolor painting. This time, I tried to vary the framing and skip some part, in order to make the video shorter and more interesting.
And here is the final illustration :
This is, in principle, the last illustration of a series of four that I made. They represent a science field, featuring characters inspired by some of my friends. You can see the others ones again here : The Microelectronist, The Electrochemist and The Chemist.
Since some of you told me they would be interested in it, I made a “making of” video for a watercolor painting. Here it is:
And here is the final piece:
What do you think? Would you like to see more videos here, of what kind?
