  • After the frustration of being shot down from Med Schools for Medical Illustration programs, I decided to try something new, and move forward...

  • Self Promotion-
    I myself am rather humble and quiet, and often shy away from initiating conversation about my work. In an effort to self promote, I decided to try a little experiment... because I have issues about initiating conversation about my work, tried to devise a way that people would come to me, ask, and in my head, give me the ok to talk about the work without feeling cocky or arrogant. So, I painted this little ditty on my hand, and like a moth to a flame, people were drawn, attention was grasped, and heads turned like a medeival torture device. ha. The experiment was a success, and something I now do on occasion from time to time.
  • Upper Chest/ Shoulder Dissection-
    A recent piece painted up on my friend Monique of Oddities Obscura! The piece was done for a costume party initially, but like any plan made in advance, had a slightly different outcome. haha. Instead of going to the costume party (as intended), I ended up getting an opportunity to meet the cast of the show, and introduce the work to a proper target audience. 
    Latex / Sharpie / Acrylic ~ 5 hrs
  • Lateral Leg Dissection-
    A quick piece done on my close friend from HS detailing the lateral musculature of the upper and lower leg.

  • Lateral Neck Dissection-
    Probably my favorite piece of the series (thus far) detailing intermediate musculature of the neck. The Sternoclietomastoid is cut to show the internal jugular and carotid, and pharyngeal musculature.
