I just realized that the author of Visualizing Evolution Heidi Reichter is also blogging live from the AMI meeting. I have yet to meet her but maybe I’ll randomly run into her and say hi.
It’s such an unusual feeling to see so many medical illustrators at one place. No one thinks we’re morbid, and it’s normal to see a talk where the presenter shows severed human parts or unattractive positions on the slide shows. I randomly ran into a former medical illustrator at a nearby bookstore and he had no idea the conference was going on right here. He was pretty excited to meet us until we told him there’s about 300 more medical illustrators a block away. Upon hearing the information he packed up everything and headed over right away.
