A medical illustrator creates drawings, computer animations and even 3D models of every possible organ in the body. This process helps teach medical students and some patients, what happens before they enter an operating room. Read more...

    JOIN US for our Annual Alumni Dinner:


    We are trying to get a final head count for those who'd like to attend the Hopkins Alumni dinner in Toronto on July 26th (Thurs). We've reserved a few places already but need a more accurate # as some restaurants have a min or max size for large parties.

    1. Please RSVP ASAP to Shizuka Aoki
    2. Let us know of any allergies!!
    3. Spread the word to other Hopkins alum (and of course non-alum) who might want to come and are not active on the listserve.

    We'll try to keep it close the hotel but the 'trendy' restaurants are definitely towards the west end or north of the city (many of which can't accomodate large parties!). Once we have a final head count I'll post the location/menu. Feel free to contact Shizuka below with any questions!

    FATAL ATTRACTION Jenny Wang (09) illustrates for National Geographic


    news
    Jenny Wang's illustrations have been published in National Geographic Magazine! Fatal Attraction, an article on carnivorous plants, in the March 2010 issue of National Geographic Magazine by Carl Zimmer and photographs by Helen Schmitz also highlight illustrations by Jenny Wang, a 2009 graduate of our program. Prior to starting her position as an illustrator at the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute in early August, Jenny was chosen as a summer intern at National Geographic. While there, she worked with the in-house design team and was assigned to illustrate the four unique and even innovative mechanisms by which carnivorous plants "lure insects into death traps, then gorge on their flesh." Her beautiful illustrations telling the story appear on pages 86 and 87. Way to go Jenny!

    JOHN CODY, MD donates Moth Paintings to Johns Hopkins


    news
    Dubbed the "Audubon of moths" for his prolific paintings of the Great Saturniid's, John Cody is a true renaissance man. Prior to practicing psychiatry for 30 years, he trained under Ranice Crosby in 1950 as a medical illustrator in the Johns Hopkins Department of Art as Applied to Medicine. While he did not practice as a medical illustrator, his training at Hopkins continues to impact his paintings of the Saturniid moths in which John strives to show the beauty of all living creatures.


    Dr. Cody and his daughter Loren Shaiken have donated fifteen of these magnificent paintings to the Department of Art as Applied to Medicine. They are currently on display in the new Wilmer Ophthalmology Robert H. and Clarice Smith Building on the Johns Hopkins Medical Campus.


    Dr. Cody and his three children, Loren, Andrea, and Graham, have donated his paintings to three separate institutions: The Department of Art as Applied to Medicine at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland; The Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation in Pittsburgh, PA; and The Sternberg Museum of the Fort Hays State University in Hays, KS.


    Dr. Cody is also the author of four biographies including After Great Pain: The Inner Life of Emily Dickinson; The Life and Times of Wagner; Max Brödel: The Man Who Put Art in Medicine (co-authored with Ranice Crosby); and Ranice W. Crosby: A Tribute to Fifty Years of Teaching.

    news
    May 22, 2009: We are pleased to present this year's Ranice W. Crosby Distinguished Achievement Award to Nancy McCall, director of the Alan Mason Chesney Medical Archives of the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions. Since 1987, she has guided the medical archives to new heights of national and international recognition. In 2006, she received an Electronic Records Fellowship for her role in establishing HIPAA-compliant procedures for access and use of materials that contain identifiable health information. At the recent celebration of the 30th anniversary of the archives, Nancy said, "The archives show the strength and grit that was required to build a world-class institution of teaching, research and patient care."


    Today the Chesney Medical Archive stands as a leading facility throughout the country and around the world due in large part to her enthusiastic service. Please join me and the Department of Art as Applied to Medicine in honoring her with this award for her role as the "Preserver of Hopkins History."

    TIM PHELPS: Up in Flames


    Up in Flames: The Art of Flame Painting (MBI 2006) celebrates a truly American art form that has invaded and changed the face of popular culture.


    newsThe book features the life histories of 18 famous flame painters, their working style and full color images of their creatively crafted cars. Flame painting history and its practitioners have never been fully recognized for the art that has always signified hot rods and motorcycles. The art form's legitimacy lies in the world of true ornamentation-art for beauty, art with a purpose. Many of the stories are coming from first generation painters who initiated the art form just 60 years ago. Colorful words-and-colorful ART-indeed!


    In preparation for this book and since, Tim has flame painted over 400 miniature diecast cars and has authored over 2 dozen history and how-to articles for a variety of rod, art and toy magazines.

    LEON SCHLOSSBERG scholarship fund established


    The Leon Schlossberg Scholarship Fund has been established in the Department of Art as Applied to Medicine to honor the legacy of Leon Schlossberg to medical science, medical education, and medical illustration. During a career that spanned over sixty years, Leon dedicated his enormous talent to one of his true passions: the understanding of living, functional anatomy. As illustrator for the Department of Surgery at Johns Hopkins and an educator in the Department of Art as Applied to Medicine he inspired countless physicians and students throughout the world. This is especially true for those who had the privilege of being part of the Hopkins community during his prolific years.


    Leon exemplified the province of the medical illustrator as he had learned from his teacher and mentor, Max Brödel. Brödel's unique technique and approach to visual presentation inspired Leon in each piece of work he created. In what is perhaps Leon's most famous work, The Johns Hopkins Atlas of Functional Anatomy, his dedication to the teaching ideals of Max Brödel is best reflected.


    Leon Schlossberg, the consummate professional, considered his collaboration with some of Hopkin's finest surgical pioneers equal to his work with graduate students of medical illustration. He approached each venture with firm belief in the value of the illustration. In turn, he garnered the respect of friends, students, and colleagues the world over.
