Medical illustration portfolio

I'm Dr Ciléin Kearns, a medical illustrator who draws from an odd background in healthcare and the video games industry. My medical art has been published in journals, books, apps, games, and presented around the globe. Uses range from illustrating new surgical techniques in research publications, to designing animated illustrations for virtual reality surgery videos. If you'd like to commission some art: get in touch
