Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
Hello :) dA is where I share collaborative art and find most of my collaborators, especially for EC. I'm not here much right now, so you might want to find me in one of these places;

My current project is 'Cryptic Cards' -…
I'm currently a visiting artist in Uop Brain Tumour Research lab -…
My home page -
Illustration and print-to-order products can be found at -…
I blog at imaginingscienceart.blogspot.c…
I'm also at @DrImmySmith on twitter

I’m an artist and former neuroscientist. The oddest things in nature and the curious intricacy of biological processes inspire me to make art. I'm interested in the overlapping places between scientific ideas, biological images, personal mythology and surreal art. In my imagination weird cells and strange creatures come out to play... the subconscious can be a busy place, so I try to accommodate all the deep-sea-neuronal-carnivorous fungi-plankton-plants that grow in it.
Oh and I like to make jokes about marmots every time someone gets too serious...

Cryptic Cards by Immy-is-Thinking
Cryptic Cards
The other project I'm working on is called Cryptic Cards. I'm painting one card a week, and will be crowdfunding to print the actual deck. You can find out more at… and keep up with the project with the hastag #CrypticCards on twitter/tumblr

Page from the Connecting Narratives book
Each page in the giant Connecting Narratives book, created for us by artisan book binder Beth Coin, tells a small part of someone's story about brain tumours. Some stories are about patients, some are from scientists, others come from family members. This page tells the story of how collaborating with ScottMan2th lead to me being a resident artist in a brain tumour research lab. Its strange to have some of my own words in the book, everything else comes from project participants. But if Scott hadn't shared his story, I wouldn't be working on this project. So its an important part of the whole story. The luggage tags were hand dyed by Scott - many thanks as always my friend!

A side note here is; don't underestimate the contacts you make online. I met many of my amazing collaborators like SalHunter and ScottMan2th here on dA. Now we have exhibited work together irl. These things have all added to the mixture with lots of other hard work, and helped make sciart become my day job.
Happy spring y'all! I hope you're all well.  I don't spend much of my day at a computer anymore, so apols for my absence, and you can keep up with me more frequently if you like via Twitter where my handle is @ DrImmySmith. I can work twitter on my phone but not dA... I'm such a luddite :XD:

I recently won a 10 month residency and so now I work as a resident artist in a brain tumour reserch lab. The project aims to connect the stories of brain tumour researchers and patients through art. You can fin out more about that here -… and I promise I will update my dA gallery when I get a mo. Special thanks are due to my collaborator ScottMan2th who has been a part of the journey that lead me to this residency :D

Its an amazing residency, but super-busy. I'm looking forward to some R&R over easter so I can catch up with my Exquisite corpses with LuckyRossMartin and Keneru92 some more. I'm slow but I get there in the end ;)

I'm missing all my dA friends and collaborators, who've supported me through my PhD and beyond, and shared so much fun - y'all know who you are. Especially all the Exquisite Corpser's, and chriseastmids, ArtByCher, SalHunter, aruarian-dancer, Bernardumaine, MBKKR, TazPoltorak, TRANSMICHION... aaaaarg there's too many people I miss! I hope we can connect through other networks, I'll try and get my rear in gear on dA when I can. Hugs to y'all xxx

hello, i am  back in my original 2009 account now,  seems  weird, thinking,  hmm,   7  years of  hogwarts, lego builds, and i am  back  making hogwarts again for another 7 years, with the new #fantasticbeastsandwheretofindthem  movies ,

so i  am  back, re-aquainting myself  to all 7  year  accounts,   wow, i  thought people who were on here  for 15 - 16  years  had a good tim eline, i sort of,  jumped around in my 16 accounts htat i have now, so i thought, ah, it is  time  i stuck  with the  7, hogwarts, and  did a  retrospective, HOgwarts lego  look back on  all the  lego forms. squee.  yeah, imagine   deviantart onpeoples  phones in the  future,  i guess  deviantart will always be  a CPU  hard drive,  storage, to image  application,not  enough room on a phone for all the  deviantart memoryi  guess, so,  in th e next  7  years, .. it  will be  interesting  seeing the  change in  internet  dynamics, .  i know in 2009, th e dA changed . and in 2012, and now,  it  all seems to  have made it  as a social interactive  site now,  horray for   dA.
