THE STORY:

As you know, I am a Medical Illustrator and Anaplastologist.  In 2004, the Vesalius Trust supported my master's degree research project in Anaplastology with a research grant.  I am now a board member and Secretary of the Vesalius Trust.  I believe in the work that the Trust does, and as a result, I support their effort to raise funds for research and education in  Medical Illustration and Anaplastology. Please help me to help others to advance medical and scientific communication and develop advances in Anaplastology.   This year the Vesalius Trust devised a great fundraising project, and I signed on to create artwork as part of Team Killpack.

Some Background:
Anatomy, Art, Beauty & Truth...these are a unique list of qualities.  The synthesis of these features and the beginning of modern observational and research science is marked by the publication of De Humani Corporis Fabrica, in 1543 by Andreas Vesalius.   The Vesalius Trust was established in 1988 with the goal of providing leadership for the advancement of education and research in visual communication for the health sciences. Each year, the Trust supports: scholarships, research grants, continuing professional education, and an international recognition program for exceptional contributions to medical education.   This year, David Killpack has assembled a dream team of some of the most amazing medical illustration talent on the planet...an international team of living legends and rising stars.   Three teams are competing to raise the most donations to support their work of art.  The final work of art is a 24x36 inch work made up of 54 individual images created by medical illustrators from around the world. Each square in the project is a cut portion of the bigger image. Think of a grid on the main image, and each artists receives one or two squares from the grid.  After each artist has painted, sculpted, or embellished their square (following the reference provided, of course), it will be shipped, carried, or posted to Toronto to be assembled and auctioned off at the Annual Meeting of the Association of Medical Illustrators to raise additional funds beyond our Crowdrise donations.  We'll even reveal a few details along the way so donate now, join the fun and see what we're up to!  

Consider A Donation to Support my Artwork Please consider donating as little as $10 to support my squares in the project.  As a thank you, I'll send you a photo of the final assembled work from medical illustrators across the world. If you would like to designate your donation to the Walter Spohn Education Fund to support Anaplastology specifically, please let me know, and I will be sure to designate your funds to the WSEF.
