My TED Talk is Available on YouTube!

Hi! I'm so excited to announce that my art/science/life TEDx talk is now online! It was such an honor to be a part of the TED experience, truly.

How does a person with an interest in the human eye combine both art and science? Megan Foldenauer became interested in the human eye as a child and has been drawing them ever since. Megan's interest in art and science led to her career as a biomedical Illustrator and multimedia specialist in the University Of Michigan Department Of Neurosurgery, where both skills serve her well.

I'll talk about art, science, and my life in medical illustration and I hear I'm to speak 2nd-to-last, so, probably closer to 8:30-8:45pm EST, I wager. I'd love to know if you tune in!

Further, if you're IN the Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor/Detroit area, there will be a viewing party at Riverside Art Gallery (I was in an art show there last summer) with an afterparty afterward!

A little preview - I created this time lapse for the talk - enjoy and wish me luck!
