I thought some of you may be interested to know that the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators (GNSI) is holding their annual conference in Fort Kent, Maine this summer (July 4-11). We have presentations, workshops, field trips, technique showcases and exhibits. The GNSI website is: www.gnsi.org. The conference website is: http://www.gnsi.science-art.com/2009ME/index.shtml and has a complete schedule of events. I'm happy to answer any questions. The last time I was in Fort Kent was with the JBS! Sincerely, Gretchen Halpert [log in to unmask] GNSI, Inc.
