What is Alphanatomy?

Alphanatomy is an alphabet book that showcases a different anatomical feature for each letter—A is for aortic arch, B is for biceps, C is for calcaneus, etc.—and also includes a subtle version of the letter in each illustration. Inspired by my alphabet-obsessed son and my career as a Certified Medical Illustrator, I began writing and illustrating Alphanatomy earlier this year when I realized there just aren't many children's books that discuss human anatomy.

Perfect for your budding doctor or your average curious kid!

How will the funds be used?

All funds will be used to illustrate and publish the book and to create the iPhone/iPad app.

What the heck is a Certified Medical Illustrator?

Medical illustrators do a wide variety of things, but what it really boils down to is that we specialize in visualizing medical and scientific information. My career has allowed me to draw anatomy textbooks, images for medical journals, and even a tattoo of a woman's forearm anatomy.
