Frequently asked questions

A medical illustrator is a professional artist with advanced education in both the life sciences and visual communication. Often collaborating with scientists, physicians, and other specialists, medical illustrators transform complex information into engaging and informative visuals tailored to their audience.

 

 

Photos and videos are useful materials, but they often cannot convey a specific message. For example, cellular and molecular concepts are best communicated when illustrated and animated because small cellular bodies are incredibly difficult to photograph clearly.

Illustrations of surgical procedures are far easier to understand than footage and photos because we can distinguish structures, create emphasis, and clarify each step of a surgery from start to finish.
