This is an innominate or hip bone. It was our first carbon dust project in the Medical Illustration Program.

This carbon dust drawing is of a surgical procedure in which the stomach replaces a diseased esophagus. I like the hand in the chest.
This pen and ink drawing shows a surgical repair of a torn aorta. In real life, there would be blood everywhere!


This heart is flayed open to show the abnormal yellow lipoma inside. I painted this in acrylics from a surgical specimen in a jar. 
This was one of my favorite projects, a South American Leaf Bug, painted in watercolor on a background of paper stained with coffee grounds.

I went to Johns Hopkins for an ophthalmological illustration course. This is a watercolor portrait of the eye of John Knight, a friend of my parents. I gave him this painting just before his untimely death.

This medical-legal project was painted with acrylics with an overlay, so the jury could see how the epiglottis swelled up in the back of this patient's throat and closed off his airway.

The yellow sticker at the bottom means it was accepted as evidence

This medical-legal project was done with airbrush. The thoracic surgeon put the bypass veins in upside down and the valves prevented normal blood flow. The graft on the left is normal.

Here is a close-up of a brown iris I painted using colored inks and stippled the texture with a water color brush.

This was an incredibly tedious pen and ink project from Medical Illustration school. It took days to stipple the liver.
