From Comics to Medical Art, a presentation by Jeff Day
Bam! Kapow! Scalpel! Jeff Day never outgrew his love of cartooning even after becoming a medical illustrator. Jeff shares comics lessons that can be applied to science art, and how he continues to use cartoons to communicate health and medical messages. Jeff is now an informatics fellow at the National Library of Medicine and draws deeply from his varied background as a medical student, pediatrics intern, natural history museum educator, and training in medical illustration. Yes it was a windy path, but that's what you get for a guy who never outgrew cartoons...

Some of his medical art can be seen at http://www.daybiomed.com.
