Student Works: Kristin Luther

Posted by Janet on June 24, 2008

Kristin Luther, currently a student in the Biomedical Visualization program at UIC, explains the carpal tunnel syndrome through her illustration below. This illustration was made during her second semester in the program.

Here is what Kristin says about her work:

“We have been learning all about commonly used techniques within the field of medical illustration. The technique I used for this piece is line art made in Adobe Illustrator. I started with a scanned sketch, which I traced over (using the pen tool) and then added flat and gradient fills. The message is to explain some of the causes of carpal tunnel syndrome, and the audience is the general public.”

More of Kristin’s works can be seen on her website at and Kristin can be reached at
