Our co-founders attended the 2017 Association of Medical Illustrators conference in Austin, Texas.
AMI’s 72nd Annual Conference was hosted on the campus of University of Texas at Austin. Speakers such as creature designer Terryl Whitlatch (her image of Newts featured above) and bat conservationist Merlin Tuttle, PhD inspired the gathering of medical illustrators and animators.
It was a great pleasure for the nascent Newt Studios to immerse ourselves in fascinating presentations and technique demos at the conference. We reconnected with old friends and engaged with a number of talented colleagues.
Austin didn’t disappoint with its BBQ joints, bats under the bridge, and bumping live music scene!
