Image of the Week: Pages from a medical illustrator's sketchbook

Here a human heart takes shape in the pages of  medical illustrator Sayaka Isowa's sketchbook. She writes:

"Since childhood I had a passion for drawing and was inspired by the beauty of the human body and living species. I discovered biomedical art through my illustration classes and became fascinated by the collaboration of art and science."

There are more fascinating works in progress and sketches on Isowa's blog.
