About me

2016-CV-Vega_Asensio-ENFotografía Miguel Calvo Alejo “MITXI”

I am a doctor in Biology. Throughout my research career I collaborated with several universities: Leopold Franz University of Innsbruck in Austria, University of Galway in Ireland, University of Throndheim in Norway, University of Cardiff in Wales, University of Salamanca and University of the Basque Country. I always took every opportunity to illustrate the works of my colleagues, who always encouraged me to continue drawing.

After finishing my PhD, I decided to give mixing art and science a try, this is, doing Scientific Illustration.

Regarding my professional training as a scientific illustrator, I began at an early age with Jaime Vicario, an artist of my home-town (Durango). Afterwards, I learned with Carles Puche, María Viñas and Patrik DcDonnell scientific illustration, with Fernando Baptista infographics and with Alberto Cairo data visualization. I have also taken courses in graphic design.

Currently, I am working full time in the NorArte project. I offer you scientific rigor, high skills and multiple resources in order to take your scientific idea into the best possible picture and thus make much greater the quality and charm of your communicative content.
