Scientific Illustration (SI) is originated from the "natural history illustration". During the 19th century, many of the natural history illustration in herbalism and botany are drawn in Japan. These have a "scientific accuracy". Therefor the scientific illustrator has scientific expertise and scientific observation eye. These illustrators produce the SI with scientists. The SI is a different from the general art.
Today lots of the Japanese scientists play important roles in international research projects and conferences. SI can help the Japanese scientists’ works in overseas. However, It has been humble in scientific community. Especially SI for the earth science is found rarely in publications in Japan and overseas. Here I present SI works in the earth science field for scientific community and for public.
