"Leon was born in Southern California in 1959. Early in his youth, he found himself especially interested nature and read all he could about naturalist like John Muir who captured young Leon’s imagination. In his early adolescent he came across a small box containing his father’s painting supplies and a few of his paintings that had been stored away after his father passed away. Though Leon’s father died when he was too young to remember, Leon felt a connection with this humble box of paints that he knew his father once used. Ultimately, this was a life changing event for him: Leon decided he wanted to paint, too."
"Andy Ellison works at the BU medical school in Boston where he frequently works with a research-only MRI scanner. Over the past few months he’s been sharing some fantastic animated gifs of his calibration and quality control scans using assorted fruits, vegetables and other plants. As you can see the results are absolutely mesmerizing and I urge you to check out his blog, Inside Insides, for many more scans and hi-res images."
