Overview and Anatomy of the Thalamus

Audience: Undergraduate and medical students

Client: Prof. Dave Mazierski and Prof. Shelley Wall

In collaboration with Lucas Lin and Stephanie Hung, this team project was an exercise in producing illustrations in a studio environment, where a different illustrator works on the design and conceptualization, preparation and rendering of a double-page spread intended for a neuroanatomy textbook. My role for this piece involved the rendering stage using references and drawings provided by Lucas, and vectors created by Stephanie.
