medical illustration of Gilead Sciences, a leader in developing innovative oral medicines targeting PI3K Delta with a focus on B-cell malignancies, including NHL and CLL uses solutions like this to describe the PI3K pathway in a format that is easy to convey and understand while being visually compelling. Only a portion of the overall image is shown here due to space constraints. Created in Illustrator with finishing touches in Photoshop.
medical illustration of This series serves as a visual platform for our client to give a primer on human toll-like receptors 1-10, with a focus on TLR8. Shown here are the left and middle pathways. Target audience is investor-centric.
Platform is PPT, web, and corporate fact sheets. Created in Illustrator with finishing touches in Photoshop.
medical illustration of This series serves as a visual platform for our client to give a primer on human toll-like receptors 1-10, with a focus on TLR8. Shown here are the middle and right pathways. Target audience is investor-centric. Platform is PPT, web, and corporate fact sheets. Created in Illustrator with finishing touches in Photoshop.
medical illustration of ADCC (Antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity) is an opportune way to attack tumor cells. Seen here in a portion of the full illustration is an activated NK (natural killer) cell attacking a tumor cell by adhering to the Fc domain of a monoclonal antibody (mAb). This allows the NK cell to release perforin which leads to the tumor cell's deamise. Created in Illustrator with finishing touches in Photoshop.
medical illustration of This illustration conveys how a virus containing ssRNA initiates the human TLR8 pathway in a myeloid dendritic cell to initiate a pro-inflammatory reaction. Only a portion of the overall image is shown here due to space constraints. Platform is PPT, web, and corporate fact sheets. Created in Illustrator with finishing touches in Photoshop.
medical illustration of “Locate Yourself” is classic phrenology reinterpreted for the modern day creative. Moth-eaten terms such as “alimentiveness” have been ditched for more digestible expressions that might cheekily classify who you really are.

Traditional drawing on marker paper plus Illustrator and finishing touches in Photoshop.
medical illustration of One of many illustrations for a genetics project with Seattle Children's Hospital and the UW called My46.
This RBC vs Sickle Cell illustration is geared for the general public and was rendered in a visually compelling format to correlate with associated text. Created completely in Illustrator.
medical illustration of This illustration serves as a visual platform for our client to discuss the demyelination cycle in MS (multiple sclerosis) within the central nervous system. Target audience is investor-centric. Platform is PPT, web, and corporate fact sheets. Traditional drawing plus rendering in Photoshop with elements from Illustrator.
medical illustration of This is a close up of an illustration serving as a visual platform for our client to discuss the demyelination cycle in MS (multiple sclerosis) within the CNS.

medical illustration of This is one illustrative in a series that aided our client in educating a jury on understanding a surgeon's scope magnification value for the repair of a severed nerve. The penny, something the jury could associate with, represents a less tangible detail like scale. For the record, surgery should have been performed at 10x magnification. Final work was done using Photoshop and used in PowerPoint for trial.
medical illustration of This is one of a new series of images Genome Alberta asked us to create for their Genomics app on Facebook. Facebook users can use this app to exchange virtual genes ranging from the gene that makes blue eye color, to fitness.
