What is Medical Illustration?

The most common question I receive about my career choice of medical illustration is, what is medical illustration? Breaking down the formula for the title of a medical illustrator is similar to revealing the illusion behind a magic trick. Magic tricks, like medical illustration are a juxtaposition of two worlds, which shouldn't fit but do. Medical illustration is the perfect balance of the visual formula for science and art.

In the medical system, from the moment future doctors enter med school, they are learning from images we have created. Because medical illustrators have had had the same science foundation that the medical students have had. From the very basic to the extreme complexities of medicine, medical illustrators illustrate anatomy in its myriad states, from normal to the diseased, to help educate people everywhere. Medical illustrators are the storytellers in the health industry. It is our job to make sure our audience clearly understands what is involved when you are finished looking at an image, looking at a sculpture, watching a video, or pulling a kidney out of a hat, kidding. We need to know how to tell a story for every single person's needs no matter the education level.

In order to convince the audience the magic is real the magician has to create a visual story they can captivate the audience with. The professional medical illustrator is an individual whose master degree qualifies them to tell a visual story without words. We are trained to understand the systems and organization of the human body in ways only an artist can imagine. A magician sees his reality differently, knowing the secrets behind the story.

When you hire a magician for a show, you hire them based in their ability to create a convincing illusion that captivates the audience. The value of having a trained medical illustrator from one of the accredited programs is very similar to a skilled magician. Viewing a surgery from the surgeon's perspective, feeling the living breathing tissue from an animal on the operating table, and taking med school classes among the future doctors are all achievements I can rightfully claim as developments in making the perfect magic act. There are about 1000 medical illustrators in the continental United States, and only four accredited graduate programs who train them. We are the few magicians able to mix science and art together, and it truly is magic.

    We hired Lynsey to design our brands, webpage, marketing materials, etc for our new business, Pearson Farms, LLC. Our business consists of 3 different sub-business: sporthorses, performance dogs and game birds. Our three sub-businesses are very different and had to be focused on individually, but married together under our name, Pearson Farms, LLC. This was no easy task.

    Lynsey had no problem rising to the challenge. Her web design and branding skills exceeded any expectation we ever had! She is the Picasso of business marketing, a true artist. She is fast, efficient and has incredible communication skills. We couldn't be happier to work with the Queen of design and branding. We have so many clients and friends inquire about who we had to help us get our site off the ground. We always recommend Lynsey with the highest regard of respect. She has been incredible and we hope to work with her for many years!!

    I could not be happier with how it turned out, a huge thank you to Lynsey (Steinberg) Ekema of Fraulein Medical Illustration for her creativity and vision. I knew I wanted something beautiful, sharp, and professional, but had no idea how to express how I wanted to achieve a particular image for myself and my company. With little to no direction, Lynsey created a site that I absolutely love and perfectly portrays my horses and business. Thrilled!

    Lynsey did an excellent job re-designing my professional website. She has impressive technical and creative skills, and communicates well throughout the design process. I can thoroughly recommend her work.

    Dr. Judy Harrison Harrison Clinical Consulting

    When I started my business, I had Lynsey at Fraulein Medical Illustration to my website and could not be happier! She did an absolutely fabulous job on the website and it represents me and my business perfectly! In addition to this, she designed my logo that turned out great. Lynsey is wonderful at her job and I would recommend her to anybody!

    Every once in a while I look at my website, and I can't believe it is mine. I literally gave two words of direction "crisp and sharp" to my most incredible web designer Lynsey (Steinberg) Ekema of Fraulein Medical Illustration, and she came up with this, www.llgeventing.com. Anyone considering a web presence make over should definitely get in touch with her!!
