AMEC

I’ve been busy. Again. Super busy. But came across this old image I created for a science publication while I was trying to make space on my WD passport. It was a fun drawing to create and wasn’t sure if I’d posted it before. So it’s up on my website for now. www.susangyoung.com for more illustrations and stuff!amec

More Eww where that came from

Where have you been? Not illustrating any more? What ever happened to that boxer picture?

I actually HAVE been illustrating – like MAD! So much work that I’m finishing up at 11pm on a Friday night. So where is it?? It’s all been signed away into silence in the form of non-disclosure agreements, so I can’t show any of it for a while. However, I didn’t sign anything with the medical illustration work that I do with my brother Jon, so here’s another in the tongue cutting series. This one shows why it’s always good to have a solid base stitch before cutting your fabric- I mean, tongue.

Tongue Splay

Oh, and the boxer got put on the back burner for a while. Sorry. :/

Form of… A Medical Illustrator!

Ok, so we aren’t actually twins, but we did like the cartoon when we were kids. My brother Jon is actually a lot older than me. A WHOOOOOLLLLE lot older. Hear that Jonny?? And he was the one who taught me to draw, shouting things out while I sketched like, “You’re holding your pencil too tight!”, “Where’s your light source???” and “That’s not anatomically correct!!!”. I was four.

And while we swear we will never try to be roommates again, we actually work pretty well together. His masters was in Medical Illustration, but then he went on to get the MD, and now he’s too busy MDing to medically illustrate, or at least to take his sketches to final. Now I’m the one shouting, “HEY! Make some sketches already!” and “I don’t care if you’ve been on call for the past 48 hours! Draw! DRAAAAAAWWW!!” Payback.

So here’s one of the medical illustrations we’ve recently collaborated on. It’s kinda gross. But that’s medical illustration for you: kinda gross.
