“Attainment and science, retainment and art—the two couples keep to themselves, but when they do meet, nothing else in the world matters.”

-Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

Medical illustration is a unique discipline; it attracts individuals whose left and right portions of the brain do not dominate the other, but work in tandem. Each visual depiction represents an artistic creation and a scientific problem solved.

Medical illustrators are also teachers seeking to illuminate the complex inner world of our bodies through all forms of media, where words and photographs may fall short.
