In my first year of college, I had to take two mandatory drawing classes. Awesome, graphic designers aren't always the best 2d artists and since I grew up drawing and painting, I figured it would be an easy good grade to help balance out English 101 :). Turns out the drawing classes took quite a bit of time and we had to also do some technical anatomical drawings completely to scale. I think I put around ten or so hours into each one to get all the proportions decent and include all the intricate muscle groups. While at times I remember running straight from soccer or basketball practice to get over to the art building still sweaty and with limited time to get some drawing in, they were fun to work on and slowed my mind down.
Recently I had the idea to scan in the drawings and create some funny callouts. Going to a buddies residency graduation seemed like a good cause to assemble the first poster and present it as a gift. I plan to create a few other versions with more callouts so they could be hung as different posters together in a series. Possibly license them to med-schools for selling in their campus stores and just send to doctor offices to get a few smiles. All in all, fun to look back at some old drawings, and to combine a creative thought with some artwork.
