This is an illustration that won the Ralph Sweet Award – Best of Show for 2009 currently being showcased at MaRS for the Association of Medical Illustrator’s annual conference in Toronto, ON. I adore horses and it’s incredible to see the intricacies of their respiratory tracts.
This week has been absolutely crazy, attending the Comics & Medicine conference followed by the Association of Medical Illustrator’s (AMI) annual conference all happening in Toronto. I have to fit it all in my normal work and volunteering hours and not to mention trying to enjoy the Beaches Jazz festival also at the Toronto Beaches. It’s a good time to be in Toronto right now. Unfortunately I can’t attend all the talks for the AMI conference but I’ve been volunteering as much as I can to submerge myself in the field. Mind you I haven’t even started my masters so sitting in some of these is way beyond my knowledge. Still, it’s amazing to be exposed to this field of medical illustrations, comics, and graphic design so early on. I’ll share with you this weekend what I’ve thought of the Comics & Medicine conference. And of course share what I can about the AMI conference as well. I’ll throw in some jazz festival pictures for those interested. Stay tuned if you please!
