I became aware of Santiago Ramón y Cajal’s research and his drawings three years ago while working on neuroscience illustrations for the new edition of Human Neuroanatomy by Dr. James R. Augustine. I was immediately captivated, inspired and intrigued with Cajal’s artistic drawings, his scientific research and his personality (as represented in the autobiography Recollections of My Life.) Cajal was such a fascinating and multi-talented individual. After I had read his autobiography, there was a part of me that felt like some key aspects of Cajal, (his humor, and how he imagined himself - particularly during his childhood), were often absent from the mainstream discussions of him and his work. One day I was lamenting this, and then it occurred to me that as an artist, I could create works that expressed biographical and metaphorical interpretations of his life and his internal world.
