Beautiful Scientific Illustration And Animation Done in Connecticut

He started out as a shirt illustrator and found that most of the work coming across his desk was scientific, so Michael Astrachan of West Hartford, Connecticut decided to change course and go into scientific illustration and animation. Now, 17 years later he’s among just a handful of companies in the world that do this kind of work. His company is called XVIVO. It’s based in Wethersfield, Connecticut. Astrachan recruited Hollywood animators to give his product the richness it deserves. The illustration and animation help the lay person understand what is going on in our bodies or the scientific community better explain their work.
