Perspective on glycan arrays

I put this figure together this week for a review being published from my lab about glycan arrays. They wanted to convey that a wide variety of glycans is spotted on the array, and also that each spot displays a multivalent presentation of these glycans. Multivalency is important to capture the glycan-binding proteins (right) and viruses (left) that are routinely screened by this method. This was also an attempt to conform to the style of the journal to which it's going. You know, so I'm like versatile and stuff. But mostly I enjoyed invoking the old 1-point perspective lines, which always reminds me of my 6th grade art class, where we drew our names in block letters and then used 1-point perspective to make them 3D. It blew my 11-year old mind.
