Robot Medicine


Above, a late-in-the-process version of an illustration for the Washington University medical school holiday card, focusing on the school's increasing investment in the use of computerized mannequins in medical education. The robot turned out to be a real challenge--due to the green color, he kept looking like a wounded soldier. I ended up pushing toward an Ozzian tin man. Thanks to Mr. Denslow, 107 years later.

More posting later today.
