I probably shouldn’t try a french title since Emily Damstra is from Canada and probably speaks French Eh?

I came across her stuff while trying to concept an assignment today and was just outright impressed by her style, technique, range and work ethic.

She is one very busy lady. Evident in her website here and her blog here which also offers some excellent insights into her profession.

Medical Illustration has been around a long time and for different reasons. Leonardo was doing it before photography just to record how things worked. I remember leafing through an anatomy book in grade school and was impressed by studies printed on clear acetate showing successive layers of human systems, derma, skeletal, circulatory etc.  med Illustration is still used today to map out “or  storyboard” a procedure as in the case of this beautiful rendering of internal info of co-joined twins for Mayo Clinic by Michael King. There is a lot more info at the Assn. of Medical Illustrators including info on training, certification and careers. Hey maybe this is a new direction for me.

I keep running into Marshall Arisman’s work over and over again or maybe it’s just the dark archetype that I am drawn. I read a review somewhere about his work in installation art and films so I finally did a search and went to his website and discovered a trove of interesting work in all media and genre. Spend some time here.

He is also chair of the degree program “Illustration as Visual Essay” at the school of Visual Art in NY.
