This project was created early in my training as a biomedical communicator at the University of Toronto, under the guidance of Professor Dave Mazierski.

I used carbon dust to convey the anatomical form, and added text in Adobe Illustrator.

The research stage involved studying real anatomical specimens, taken together with reference texts. Once the initial sketch was reviewed and verified for accuracy, I used carbon dust to render the bones.

The final step was to scan and clean up, and add labels.
