September 3, 2011 Student work Faculty: James Perkins
This project was done in collaboration with an orthopedic surgeon at the University of Rochester School of Medicine. He needed illustrations of several exercises for low back pain for an upcoming journal article.
A surgical resident performed the exercises while my students took reference photographs. The students completed the illustrations using a black-and-white line art technique that reproduces well in print. Although they look like ink drawings, they were done entirely in Adobe Illustrator.
The surgeon chose the best illustration and then hired that student to complete the remaining figures for the article.
