Let’s talk about reference books! Researching and understanding subject matter is arguably one of the most important parts of starting and planning any #MedicalIllustration project, especially if you work for a lot of different clients like I do and are not necessarily specialized in one particular area. Here are some of my go-to books that I use.

First, a couple different anatomical atlases for basic gross anatomy understanding (in this case, Thieme and Netter); I like to use at least two references at once so I’m not solely relying too heavily on just one other artists’ interpretation of #anatomy . I also really like Gray’s Anatomy for Students, an anatomy textbook that has a really beautiful and clear way of getting concepts across. Beyond the general/overall anatomy resources, I have a couple of books specifically focusing on dental anatomy, because I tend to have a lot of clients in dentistry and periodontics more than any other subject matter. And the last book shown here is Clemente’s Anatomy Dissector, an important resource that goes deeper (lol) and provides further context beyond showing individual organs and structures (in the way that atlases often do), such as correlating surface anatomy to underlying anatomy, structures in situ, and comprehensive explanations of various dissections.

#MedicalIllustrators , tell me about your favorite reference materials. Other #artists and creatives, what sort of research is involved in your workflow?
