I have taken part in creation of Memorix Anatomy right before my graduation. It has been my task to paint the majority of the pictures including the cardiovascular system, bones, joints etc. Luckily, there were two co-workers, who helped me a lot. We have managed to finish hundreds of pictures in just a single year. It was our wish to make them simple and colourful. Simplicity makes it possible to redraw the pictures by the students themselves and the motley colours help distinguish all the anatomical structures. I hope you will be satisfied with our work.
