Hi, I’m Simone Zoccante an Italian natural history illustrator and paleoartist, with a deep-rooted knowledge in zoology, natural history, and paleontology.
Creating a functional and compelling scientific illustration is not an easy task, as it requires the ability to convert data, analysis, and studies into images that are easily understandable, aesthetically pleasing, and can help the reader visualize the expressed concepts.
Therefore, to create an excellent scientific illustration, I combine the skills from the scientific world with those from the field of visual design that I have acquired throughout years of study and work.
I specialize in vertebrate scientific illustration. I not only depict living vertebrates but, being a paleoartist, I also reconstruct the appearance of extinct animals and environments.
To create a correct and accurate scientific illustration, I usually study numerous scientific papers, and I enjoy engaging in interactions and exchanging information with researchers.
