Client: Pediatrics Nationwide Magazine, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, Columbus OH

From the artist: The article was titled TPIAT: A WAY FORWARD FOR CHRONIC PANCREATITIS. I work directly with the surgeons to develop the surgical overview. I have done several editorial and cover pieces for them over the years. I also did the cover for spring summer 22, spring summer 21, fall winter 20, and spring summer 2019.”


At MedDraw Studio, Mandy Root-Thompson works with medical, legal, and scientific professionals to communicate complex information to a lay audience in the form of patient and consumer education materials and demonstrative exhibits. These illustrations show general anatomy, surgical procedures, injury summaries, mechanism of injury, timelines, and medical imaging interpretation. With a background in advertising, marketing, education, and biological and anatomical sciences, it is Mandy’s goal to create a unique solution to each client’s communication needs.
