Since returning to his home town of Kansas City in 1991, Mark has been creating medical illustrations for trial exhibits and mediations for local and national tort attorneys. His wide ranging medical and scientific illustration career, spanning several decades, has exposed him to a considerable diversity of medical and surgical specialities, anatomic regions, as well as medical pathologies and injuries. From the simplicity of an ankle fracture to the complexity of a misdiagnosis or surgical complication, Mark has almost “seen it all.” Good storytelling is key to the success of any medical illustration, Mark believes, and this is especially true of medical legal exhibits, where often a lay audience needs to be led through challenging medical issues which play out over the course of weeks, months or even years. The ability to distill complex issues into graphics accessible to those without a medical education is something Mark takes pride in. With extensive experience in the area of patient education illustration (see Mark has a feel for the style of illustration appropriate for a lay audience, which is accurate but never condescending. The bottom line is to instruct without confusion or offense, Mark believes, and through this philosophy a cogent picture of the issues can be achieved.
