When Medical Illustration Becomes A Serious Game

Biomedical image makers "play" Serious Games

Via: MEDILLSB.COM - Medical Illustration Source Book w/Portfolios Online

In print and on-line, the Medical Illustration Source Book and its companion website are your definitive resources for medical and natural science illustration, animation and multimedia.

The website contains the content of the Source Book print edition, plus up to date contact information, additional portfolio images covering a wide range of searchable 2-D and 3-D styles and specialties, and links to individual artist websites.

The Source Book introduces you to the most talented artists working today. They have the scientific training and knowledge to understand your challenge, your choice of media and your audience. What is not seen there is the collaborative process that takes place between you (the art buyer or thought leader) and the scientific image creator. These brilliant individuals offer a depth of knowledge and commitment to scholarship that reflects a lifetime of learning. Their unique ability to communicate with research scientist, physician, attorney and layman allows an assignment to have dimension, life and humanity - Serious Games-like. Their ability to draw, paint, photograph and to harness visual computing technology translates thousands of words into powerful, engaging images.
