Tetrahedral molecule art – fun constellations in a starry sky which have the tetrahedral geometric shape of some molecules like methane (CH₄), MnO₄, XeO₄, etc. Whatever I do, there comes a moment when I find myself drawing these shapes again and again. My chemistry background frequently goes into my art. This week’s topic of Illustration Friday is “Galaxy” so this is what I came up with. Though, to be punctual, neither of these are galaxies, they’re just some weird constellations. Anyway, close enough to the topic. Drew this illustration in Procreate using the app’s light brush and I was impressed. Loved the effect. Added art prints to Redbubble and Society6 too. So, check it out: Continue reading “Tetrahedral Molecule Art Constellations”
I love chemistry, especially organic chemistry. Drew this methane molecule because methane is the first compound we study in this discipline (my primary education is a pharmacist). And, to be honest, because I love drawing these shapes. Atomic orbitals represent all possible places of the electrons in space. That is what the dots stand for. And I like adding dots everywhere, too. This design is also related to environmental issues, because methane is one of the gases which contribute to the Greenhouse Effect.
This geek love potion emerged when we doodled with my oldest daughter some time ago. It’s a clean cartoon illustration of a glass flask filled with red bubbling liquid. Heart shaped bubbles flow cheerfully out of the flask. It’s a somehow geeky design related to my love for science, especially chemistry. (I’m a pharmacist by primary education. And I love all kinds of nerdy stuff, too.) Continue reading “Geek Love Potion”
