“I rely on the Medical Illustration Sourcebook because it is an established, reputable, and reliable marketing tool that works for me. It allows me to focus more on production and growing my business.”

Adam Questell, AKU Design

“The Sourcebook has been a consistent means of advertising my work to a wide variety of clients over the years. I am always pleased to hear when someone sees my work through the online database and sees my portfolio. Even though most of my advertising is now digital, clients still ask for print samples. The Sourcebook and medillsb.com website are valuable resources for my clients, and for the dissemination of my work.”

Jennifer E. Fairman, CMI, FAMI




# 1 PRINT & WEB RESOURCE


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.


“I would not have the exceptional client base that I have now without the Sourcebook. It's that simple.”

Michele Graham, MS, MFA, CMI

“This is my 7th straight year in the Sourcebook. The book and website have been invaluable to me, not just for finding new clients but reminding old clients of what I have to offer. There is no better way to let potential medical illustration buyers know that I exist, and the cost is a bargain considering a small job can more than pay for the program.”
