THE STORY:

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.  Together, we will create a collaborative image with a 24x36 inch work made up of 54 individual images.

The work of art created by Team Killpack pays homage to Professor Gerald (Jerry) Hodge who passed away in early June of this year. Jerry was a well-known and respected medical illustrator who started a medical illustration training program at the University of Michigan.  Jerry trained many talented artists who went on to be well respected medical illustrators themselves.  Jerry was known for his pen and ink work and later for his love of trompe l’oeil work.  The artwork is a trompe l’oeil work containing photographs of Jerry and artwork of Jerry's displayed among the insects he illustrated and maps of the places he traveled. Each item in the piece carries symbolism which will be fully revealed once the piece is assembled at the Association of Medical Illustrators meeting. 

The final piece will be 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! 

We are now offering prizes for donors (previous contributions count too)!  Check out our terms below:

  • All donors receive a digital photo of the final work of art
  • Donations of $30 or more (limited to the first 54 starting 7/18) receive a 4 x 4 inch section of the artists' reference mounted on matte board - See examples on left.
  • Donations of $100 or more receive an 8 x 10 inch print of the finished work
  • Donations of $400 or more receive a 12 x 18 inch print of the finished work

A full size print of the final works will also be given to each of Professor Hodge's children as a token of our respect and admiration for one of the true giants of our profession.
