Here is a collection of some of my favorite projects. Some have links to more information.
I made anatomy templates that allow for users to draw on top to learn anatomy in a very visual format (ideal for artists like me). I tried to bridge the gap between people who want to draw to learn anatomy, but do not want to spend time drawing a skull, for example.
ACR Convergence 2020A tweet about my meet and greet
I designed masks and notebooks for the largest Rheumatology conference using an immunology design that Dr. Fauci sported during a Coronavirus Task Force meeting on 6/28/20. I also got to do a meet and greet with attendees and talk about the intersections between art and science.
Figure/Cover in Operative NeurosurgerySee the cover and find the articles in this issue
I had the opportunity to create a figure of Barrow types of carotid-cavernous fistulas for a case series in Operative Neurosurgery. I enjoyed the process because we went through imaging together and found reference views from the cases to use to create these. The components of my figure were also used to make the cover for this issue!

Every year, Academic Medicine has a call for cover art. This year I didn't make the cut, but perhaps I will next year!
Graphical AbstractRead the paper
I made the graphical abstract for this study in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology. I drew a histology slide, added a polyp to the journal's existing base image, and then found a way to arrange the data and title nicely so that it fit within the constaints of the journal.

Graphical AbstractRead the paper
This graphical abstract for the American Journal of Gastroenterology features a really cool "split screen" style to depict baseline normal colonoscopies vs. ones with adenoma. The study looked at the cumulative colorectal cancer incidence given earlier colonoscopy results.
ACP Wellness Wave 2022Catch the wave!
I created graphics and branding for an initiative through the American College of Physicians focusing on wellness. I also designed masks, mugs, pouches, and stickers for the events associated with its launch.
This was a drawing that I made based on a scene that I witnessed in an operating room while I was on my neurosurgery rotation!
We interrupt this program to talk more about the Fauci art! This is a piece that I made soon after finding out that he wore one of my designs. I didn't realize how many people noticed it until people started coming to me with opportunities, for which I am so grateful. I also wrote a blog post about it when it happened, which you can read below.
Collaboration with VINPINBuy a scrub cap
I worked with Dr. Chan to teach him how to make seamless patterns and he created this extremely cute fabric for me to turn into scrub caps to sell on his site. Go get some pins from him while you're there!

Dr. Woof Apparel makes extremely cute scrub caps and scrubs and is based in Australia. We collaborated to make scrub caps with this mitochondria pattern!
