One of the times that medical illustrators get to be truly creative is with medical editorial illustrations. Whether it’s for the cover of a medical journal/magazine or an article, editorial illustrations combine scientific accuracy with artistic license. They are the true bridge between medical illustration and anatomical art.
These editorial medical illustrations are by Alexandra Baker who is one half of DNA Illustrations, Inc., a biomedical visualization company specializing in custom concept illustrations for editorial and advertising use. Alexandra received her M.S. Medical Illustration degree from the Medical College of Georgia and has over 20 years of experience as a freelance medical illustrator.
I love the color and use of texture in Alexandra’s illustrations. If you’re looking to get into medical illustration, it’s definitely worth a look through Alexandra’s work at dnaillustrations.com and Coroflot for inspiration!
