The studio was founded in 2013 by Dr. Brian Dunham, Dr. Ladislav Kavan and Eo Trueblood. As a medical illustration studio, ours is unique in that we bring three different areas of expertise together under one roof in an academic setting: art and design, medical/surgical science and computer science. To our knowledge, our studio is the first of its kind in an academic medical center. Our high quality of work and multidisciplinary collaboration are setting a new standard for medical illustration studios in Philadelphia. Located on the first floor of the Wood Building at CHOP, we are situated to provide easy and direct access for our clients.
Our mission is twofold. First, as the only studio of its kind on the medical campus of The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, we will provide our community with cutting edge illustrations, principally through the talent and skill of our lead illustrator, Eo Trueblood. The entire team is dedicated to producing the highest quality illustrations for professionals in the medical and applied science fields.
Our second mission is academic: We are intent on creating innovative products that facilitate and enhance the decisions inherent in medical/surgical care. One of our core beliefs is that we must address the entire stream of medical decisions in patient care, from the moment of entry into medical care to the time of discharge. As just one example, we are harnessing the latest in software and hardware advances to develop an innovative digital surgical guide, with embedded surgical trainee performance metrics, to advance surgical training and surgical/medical care.
