Amy D’Camp Illustration is a studio that specializes in producing scientific or medical images and animations. Using classical drawing techniques and 2D or 3D digital software, we create informative and attractive visuals tailored to fit the client’s need. Each project begins with extensive study of the subject, experts review the content and the client approves the sketches or storyboards. We continue to work with the client until the final product is realized. Each illustration can be in black and white line, black and white tone, or didactic or realistic color. These illustrations become teaching tools for professionals, students, patients and the public by providing clear and accurate health information.
Types of illustrations include:
Anatomical: Our representations of either normal or pathological human anatomy are used primarily for educational purposes such as textbooks or atlases.
Histological/Pharmaceutical: Demand for these illustrations increases as we learn more about cellular life, and how medicine interacts with the body’s physiology. We provide illustrations to help convey complex processes that cannot be photographed.
Surgical: This involves communicating surgical procedures to doctors, students or patients. We work directly with the surgeon to illustrate current and developing practices in a way that makes them easy to understand.
Editorial: Journal covers or art accompanying an article can be literal or abstract interpretations of the subject matter, using color to evoke emotion and pique interest in the article itself.
Patient Education: We use graphics to help keep patients informed about general health, and about specific conditions or procedures to help them make decisions that are best for them.
Scientific: We are not limited to the subject of human medicine. Utilizing the same process, we will produce veterinary, botanical, technical, paleontological and archeological illustrations, to name a few.
Animation: We also develop 2D and 3D animations. These short videos can provide motion over time, user directed interactivity, and sound, great tools for increasing teaching effectiveness. Some subjects are best viewed form all directions to best communicate. Using Maxon Cinema 4D, we build models of objects and animate them in 3D space.
