The Association of Medical Illustrators (AMI) 2017 Meeting was in Austin, Texas. It was my first time in Texas, and my first time at the AMI and it was such a fabulous, great first impression of other professionals in the industry.

I am pleased to announce that my illustration, Periodontitis, received an Award of Merit this year! I remember working really hard on this piece in November 2016 and was really honoured that my hard work was recognized. Thanks AMI! It was really great meeting a lot of new people, seeing the exciting work that's going on in our industry of medical illustration, and being inspired by the hard work and supportive community. I am really looking forward to visiting the AMI again in 2018!
