What Is the “Bone Zone”?

Medical Oddities, Legal Tidings, & Artistic Postulations

June 15, 2020 | By Devon Gallo

If you’ve made it this far, you may have gathered that the Bone Zone is Anatomical Justice’s very own blog.

Here you will find articles featuring a variety of topics concerning the medical, legal, and artistic disciplines. Once a month (and sometimes more), we will post an article written by one of our certified medical illustrators, or another expert in the field. We’re excited to present an insight into the joys and challenges of medical illustration, explanations of prevalent injuries, and even tips on maneuvering the legal system when utilizing demonstrative evidence.

The name “Bone Zone” holds special meaning to Anatomical Justice’s owner and managing member, Ronald Mathias.  In addition to overseeing day-to-day operations of the firm, Ron had the coveted opportunity to teach biomedical art and visualization at Rowan University from 2017 to 2019. This industry veteran of over 27 years taught his students many of the skills required to produce exemplary anatomical exhibits with the wisdom and confidence of a seasoned professional. In return, his students exchanged their enthusiasm and witty anecdotes on life.

It was this zest for the craft of medical illustration that led several of Ron’s students to form lasting friendships. Those of his students who roomed together posted a sign at the threshold of their dwelling labeled the “Happy Bones, Happy Home,” welcoming those with a love of anatomical art. It was also a warning to those with a weak stomach. The Bone Zone is an homage to those students.

Illustrative work is a labor of love and immensely rewarding when we get to view the impact of the final product. At Anatomical Justice, we put our medical, technical, and artistic expertise to work for our clients to achieve the most salient, compelling graphics. We hope that the Bone Zone will provide you with some enlightening insights into the industry, as well as a quick chuckle here and there.
