It’s been busy times. First birth unit, then exams, and more exams, and now traveling around. I’ve been trying to keep doodling as much as possible over at Sketchy Medicine and slowly some of my more fancy illustrations are being published so I’m finally allowed to share them here!
Like this fancy picture of the intercostal artery perforators which is being published in the Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery.
In other news, the crafting posts may increase a bit in the upcoming months, but I promise I won’t get too Style Me Pretty…
Way way way back in February I posted a rough sketch for a future community project. The idea was still in its infancy then but many months later I am proud to say the mosaic is complete!
I don’t even want to think about how many hours went into its creation, but I’m so happy with how it turned out and I hope that the colposcopy clinic and their patients will get lots of enjoyment from it!
Each section measures 3×4′
This is a quick doodle I did up in Adobe Ideas to help sketch out an art project for a clinic. We’ve decided to keep it science-themed and are going to do a mosaic because 1) they are fun to look at and 2) they do not require any great artistic skill to create as a group project.
This is a submission for an upcoming art show. The painting is oil on canvas and measures 18×24″ (much more impressive than this little digital image). It was fun to paint, despite having to run out and get more paint halfway through.
I was doing some Christmas gift paintings earlier this week and they’re now uploaded in my gallery!
AMI = Association of Medical Illustrators
I’m very excited about this since I’ve been doing scientific/medical illustrations for a while and for various clients and friends and now I’m a member of an organization that’s dedicated to the integrity of the art and the science.
The funny thing is that my grade 11 science teacher had me pegged to do medical illustration. I suppose now she can say that she was right all along.
I’ve been thinking about it for a long time, but I’ve finally gone ahead and created a separate website exclusively for my scientific and medicine-related illustrations/doodles.
I’m hoping that it will be a useful resource not only for me to look back on when it comes time to study, but for other people too.
I was commissioned to do a simple logo for a friend’s church. She came up with the idea and I cleaned it up and vectorified it (if that is indeed a word).
So one of the cool things about Behance is that I can look at other’s work and feel
inadequate. It makes things even cooler when I can creep and search for local artists.
All I can say is good job, Halifax.

PS Halifax, I hope you remember that you do have an art university, so this is perhaps to be expected, but 6 years in a science bubble has somewhat sheltered me from this.
Remember back in the day when Deviant Art was big? (maybe it still is). Well, I miss those days, so this past weekend I decided that maybe it was time to search out a new art community/portfolio site. A bit of searching turned up Behance and Carbonmade, both free (or at least offering a free version).
So you can now check out my new portfolios at each.

Right now they’re the same, but what I really want to do is give my work a bit more exposure, especially my scientific illustrations and logo work. We shall see how it goes!
