The process for illustration is not too different from that of design. Many projects require me to research, communicate and collaborate with domain experts, sketch, revise, iterate, and deliver the final product. As a professionally trained medical illustrator, I am able to communicate with clients and stakeholders more effectively due to my familiarity with medical and scientific topics. Below are some of my work.
Low-poly brain and heart
This was an experiment with creating low-poly illustrations and typography in Adobe Illustrator. Both are based on 3D models I've created in the past.
3D Biomedical Still Life
I modeled the vertebrae, flask, surgical tool (aortic clamp), and the heart from scratch. The liver was 3D scanned, and the hip bones were extracted from a CT scan from OsiriX; both were cleaned up and retopologized. I created all texture, lights, and composition for the final still life render.

3D neuron sketches
These sketches were used to pitch for the illustration used on the global GAAIN website, and also led to a short interstitial animation.
