Lover Her or Liver by Maggie Hotchkiss

Maggie Hotchkiss was one of those rare students in school who becomes enamored with the anatomical and scientific illustrations in textbooks rather than all the scientific mumbo jumbo.  And so, this is how the fairy tale of becoming a medical illustrator usually begins.  Currently working at the Yale School of Medicine and doing art on the side, above are her explorations and reinterpretations of those textbook illustrations.  They remind me of old biology illustrations in my textbooks growing up and also a hint of scientific illustrations going back to mid-century.
