How would you describe your work?

– In my profession, I specialize in creating digital illustrations for the medical and scientific fields. These illustrations play a crucial role in publications and presentations, enriching the understanding of complex subjects where text alone may be insufficient. Additionally, a significant part of my work involves developing concepts and storyboards for medical explainer videos. I particularly enjoy translating script text into visual narratives, bringing concepts to life through sequential imagery.

Why did you choose to pursue medical illustration?

 – Drawing has always been my passion, coupled with a deep interest in biology and medicine. When I embarked on a career in illustration, the field of medical illustration naturally appealed to me. It offered the perfect blend of artistic expression and scientific knowledge. I value the opportunity to merge my artistic skills with a deep understanding of science, helping to visually communicate intricate scientific concepts through compelling illustrations.

What kind of education, training, or skills are necessary for this profession?

– I believe that the ability to learn and understand a subject independently is paramount. Additionally, proficiency in academic drawing and anatomy is highly beneficial. Continuous improvement in these areas is essential for success in this field.

What aspect of being an illustrator excites you the most?

– I find inspiration in collaborating with brilliant and dedicated individuals — scientists and doctors — who are committed to making a positive impact on our world. I see my role as supporting their endeavors by conveying their ideas through visual storytelling.

What’s the most challenging aspect of your work?

– The most demanding phase of my work is the conceptualization and creation of the final sketch. This process requires significant energy, but it’s also the most rewarding aspect. It involves immersing myself in the subject matter, researching extensively, and determining the most effective way to visually convey complex concepts.
