illustration of a Surgeon thinking Graphic illustration for medical promotion.


The cartoon-style illustration was created as part of a marketing campaign for the 3M brand.


The illustration portrays a surgeon in an operating theatre, captured in a moment of contemplation as they consider their next move.


Illustrated using Adobe illustrator, the chosen style is a stylish cartoon style with flat colours, enhanced by the addition of highlights and shadows. This approach aligns with an editorial illustration style and complements other illustrations commissioned concurrently.


The illustration initially started as a pencil sketch, which served as the foundation for creating a graphical vector illustration using Adobe Illustrator. This process allowed for precise detailing and scalability while maintaining the desired cartoon-like style.
