Medical Illustrator
  • Illustration - advertising, anatomical, biological, cellular, editorial, medical device, medical legal, medical product, molecular, patient education, pharmaceutical, professional education, publication, scientific, surgical, veterinary
  • Animation - 2D, 3D, storyboarding, asset creation, voice over editing
  • Web and Interactive - HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, JQuery, Flash
  • Graphic Design - logo, identity, layout, typography

I use a variety of programs and techniques to create illustrations and animations. Digital tools include Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, InDesign, Flash, Soundbooth, Dreamweaver), Corel Painter, Cinema 4D, and HTML5/CSS3/Javascript. Traditional tools include pencil, pen and ink, watercolor, and colored pencil. Styles include sketchy, didactic, schematic, realistic, and artistic/editorial.

Project specs Sketches Revisions Final artwork

Each project begins with a no-cost consultation to determine the scope and specifications: subject topic, audience, deadline, style, size, rights usage, quantity, and budget. An estimate is written from these specifications and price negotiated and agreed upon. Any references the client provides, like article manuscript, research, accompanying text, or photo references, helps speed the process and reduces the price. Sketches are drawn and sent to the client for discussion and approval. Several revisions may be made, then the final artwork is submitted.

Pricing depends upon several factors: complexity of topic, number of illustrations (a series costs less than stand-alone), 2D vs 3D, black & white vs color, reference materal provided, number of revisions, timeline (standard vs rush), market artwork will be used in, usage, distribution, and ownership rights.
