Journal of Biocommunication


JBC 46-2, 2022 concludes the series of articles by the late Dr. Richard Byrne, who prior to his death, had been a frequent speaker at the annual and regional meetings of the Association of Medical Illustrators and the BioCommunications Association.

We include an image-rich AMI Gallery featuring the professional category winners of the 2022 AMI annual meeting Salon. Whether you're seeing these illustrations and media for the first or the second time, we think you'll enjoy this Gallery.

Our first JBC Showcase features the award-winning medical illustration of John Daugherty. John was the recipient of the Association of Medical Illustrators' 2022 Lifetime Achievement Award. His award was presented at the Awards Ceremony during the AMI's 2022 annual meeting held in Des Moines, Iowa. In this Showcase, we feature 32 of John's medical illustrations.

Our second JBC Showcase offers a stunning selection of natural science images captured by BCA member, Charles "Chip" Hedgcock. We feature a number of Chip's award-winning photographic images from Mexico and the southwestern United States.
