A realm of medical illustration that I’ve more recently become active in is the creation of illustrations for trial exhibits. The images below represent one exhibit in a series of four for a case involving a shoulder injury sustained during a motor vehicle accident. The subsequent exhibits illustrate the surgeries needed to repair the damage.
I’m always amazed by the different avenues a medical illustrator can take. While I may not have set out to be a medical legal illustrator, it adds variety to my work and challenges me to keep learning new techniques.
