An Appreciation by Aprés La Pub

Je vous remercie, Après La Pub

Google Translate says, "I brought you candy because the flowers is perishable and then candy, it's so good especially when they are chewed by Megan Foldenauer who also painted many other things as candy, like a nut or hush -puppy or Ken head or an old TV or a duck, a bike, a Tiffany lamp since 2014, she decided to make a miniature work a day for all to see, her website here is a pretty good solution..."

365 Days/365 Artists

Briefly describe the work you do.

Of late, my work has been quite varied – different media, sizes, subjects. That said, it is always firmly planted in realism. Professionally, I am a medical illustrator and work in a Department of Neurosurgery. There I create anatomical and surgical images alongside health professionals for print and online use. Personally, I am about to reach my 500th drawing/painting in my small drawing-a-day series and I recently finished a series of large portraiture. My media-of-choice are pencil (Berol 3H/HB/4B are always in my arsenal), watercolor, Verithin colored pencils, and carbon dust. At work, I primarily draw and use digital media.

Megan E. B. Foldenauer, my colleague, fellow MI and friend is one of those people with amazing talent, and amazing personality to match. She is a biomedical illustrator by trade with a Masters degree from the same program I attended and now teach at, Art as Applied to Medicine at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She is very active in the field, but increasingly finds herself dabbling in her “fine art” which looks as realistic as her illustration work.
