All illustration should be made before hand. Keep in mind that your illustrations must be read by interested scientists from distances of about 3` or more. Charts, drawings and illustrations might well be similar to those you would otherwise use in making slides; preferably cruder and more heavily drawn. They need not, in fact should not, be “arty”. Simple use of color can add emphasis effectively. Do not mount them on heavy board because these may be difficult to keep in position on the poster boards.
