Pat Thomas, CMI, FAMI
It seems increasingly common in these days of instant long
distance communications, that my clients know me only as a
voice on the phone and by the artwork in their hands. Id
like to share with you a little more information to bridge
the distance gap.
My small business, Pat Thomas Medical Illustration, was established
in 1973. Details of my business career can be seen in my résumé.
I have been privileged to be the sole illustrator on nine
texts and a contributing illustrator for several others. For the past 20 years my primary work has been producing medical legal exhibits. I
have worked both defense and plaintiff cases including many
high profile trials resulting in multi-million dollar awards.
Most of this work has been in conjunction with DecisionQuest,
a trial consulting firm with offices across the country.
Ive earned and maintained the designation of Certified
Medical Illustrator (CMI). The software
company Corel, features me as one of their Painter Masters. I also serve as an adjunct clinical assistant professor in Biomedical Visualization at the University of Illinois Chicago.
In 2006-2007 I was privileged to serve as President of the Association of Medical Illustrators. I have previously served as the Association's secretary, chaired numerous committees and have received the distinction of Fellow for my contributions.
Feel free to contact me with your questions and comments.
