I made business cards for the upcoming Industry Day held by my program for graduating students. I'm not sure how I feel about it. the card actually has a full bleed (no white border like that seen here).

adam is addicted.

This is going to serve as the opening and closing shot of my MRP. I traced over a photograph in photoshop to give it a rotoscope-type feel, then i painted it. Finally, I blurred the photograph and left it on low opacity in the background to give the entire image a sense of depth and richness. The second image shows one of the brain paintings I did for the project in situ. This will zoom in and show the sagittal section in the first minute of the film to explain reward pathways. Painting is so much more fun and calming than maya...

Pharmacluster project

Mock ups of final Information and Data Visualization Project. Pharmacluster was meant to be an interactive module dislaying a pairing of neurological and psychiatric conditions along with available treatments. Upon selecting a cluster of disorders or a single disorder, all available treatments would be visible, with the option to view brand names, dosages, pharmaceutical companies currently producing the medication, and a very brief explanation of mechanism of action. Time constraints did not permit completion of the project but I am quite happy with the resulting design. I hope to complete a functional prototype sometime in the near future. To see all the details, please click on the images to view.

Some MRP assets

Sometimes I wonder if this really is a 3D project. I have so many 2D assets. Here are some digital paintings (Photoshop CS 5.1) that will appear in the final animation.

pathology studies

Tissue Landscape:

Tissue Cubes:

Both of these depict cervical epithelium. The first is a landscape of cuboidal epithelium transitioning to stratified squamous epithelium at the transformation zone of the cervix. The second shows pathological changes in cervical epithelium over time with HPV infection (cervical intraepithelial neoplasia becoming invasive squamous cell carcinoma).

Fetal transposition

In an effort to procrastinate from writing my MRP treatment, here is a small assignment for my Medical Legal Visualization course. I am liking this course a lot more than I anticipated and I am so excited for the case we have picked to illustrate. In the meantime, here's a fetus rotated 90 degrees. The image on the left is the original. I mostly sketched by eye, creating several more refined iterations. Then I scanned it in and added several guides in Photoshop to align important structures. I modified my original sketch to fit these guides and improve accuracy. I'm quite happy with it, but I say this pre-critique.

First website layout attempt

We have to create a self-promotional website for our introductory new media class. This is my first attempt at the design. I wish I could just play with fonts and columns and guides all day. But now I have to make quick thumbnail for our 3D assignment. I have no energy left. I spent all weekend looking at colons, staplers, and j-pouches for surgical.

I've made several changes based on feedback from my professor and peers. I think it looks considerably better. Now to mock up the rest of the pages!

Tissue study: whole and cut muscle, circulatory structures

I'm gradually getting these done. Some of them are drawn from illustrated material so I can't take much credit. The point of the exercise is to become adept at drawing tissues in a recognizable way and studying how other illustrators handle this is a good exercise. I've used a few references that Paul and Joyce had compiled so thanks guys! Most of them I found perusing the surgical texts in the BMC library. I'm pretty sure I want to depict ileo-anal anstomosis with loop ileostomy for my final surgical pieces. We'll see how it goes... I still have to write the summary of the procedure and do a bit of research on it.
