About the Project

This was an assignment completed in the first semester of the MSc Medical Art at University of Dundee.
The task was mainly producing a detailed anatomical drawing where different tissue types were distinguished from each other by different line work, rather than tone.
We were asked to create a labelled line drawing of a hand dissection. I chose to base my piece on a deep dissection of the hand as I wanted to focus on the bones, and the carpal bones in particular. I was interesting to me how the bones interacted with each other and how the tendons connected them.

Finally, I wanted to illustrate what happens if one of these bones shifts out of place through injury. I put together a info-sheet providing tips on how to identify a lunate (carpal bone) vs peri-lunate dislocation in a clinical setting. This was very interesting to research and I enjoyed the challenge of using different line techniques in place of tone.
