Current and potential clients regularly consult the printed Sourcebook and medillsb.com to find the artists they need to bring their projects to life. It is where art buyers from around the world turn to find the top creators of medical and scientific artwork and see their very latest styles and techniques. It’s where you should be if you are looking for work in this market.
The first Medical Illustration Sourcebook was published in 1983. It was the brainchild of Bill Westwood, an experienced medical artist who at that time was about to embark on a freelance career. Bill had a vision to create a targeted directory to help illustrators with specialized skills and knowledge reach out to medical art buyers. This type of resource would benefit all medical artists and the field of medical illustration as a whole.
Over the last quarter century the Sourcebook program has helped countless artists launch, grow and maintain their businesses in this highly competitive market.
We honor Bill Westwood’s original vision and try to live up to it with every new edition, catering strictly to the needs and markets of medical and scientific image makers. Many of the artists who participated in the first few books continue to actively promote themselves through the program, bringing new ideas to the marketplace each year.
Ranked high with all the major search engines, medillsb.com helps you reach a broader audience.
Thousands of art buyers visit the site each month to browse the online version of the book and view a wide variety of medical and scientific portfolio images, animations and streaming video clips.
Keyword searches by specialty, style, technique and subject are just a click away with easy-access menus. Online contact information includes quick links to your personal website and email. You can even add title, creator and copyright information to help protect your work.
Medillsb.com is also directly promoted with regular email blasts to creatives in the U.S. and abroad who may not receive the printed Sourcebook. This program introduces a wider audience of qualified international art buyers to the online edition, and reinforces to the market that medillsb.com is the place to find exceptional medical and scientific artists.
