Here is some helpful information for clients and those interested in medical illustration. If you can't find what you need, feel free to contact us directly. We're happy to help!

What should you provide us at the beginning of a project?

A rough idea of the number of illustrations, timeline, and budget.

What should I expect for the first meeting?

In the initial meeting we will discuss your needs, how to use illustrations to best suit your needs, as well as what style is to be used. We will work within your budget and can provided multiple options based on price.

How much will it cost?

Based on the initial meeting we will submit an estimate of what it will cost for the project. Estimates include all aspects of the project such as, sketches, rendering, revisions, formatting and usage. The estimated cost can change if additions are made to the scope of work, including multiple revisions, or added illustrations.


The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia by law retains the copyright to all illustrations produced by Stream Studios. We can provide a contract to the publisher to allow specific use rights for the image. Our work, and the ability to reuse all or part of our illustrations is the lifeblood of our studio. The loss of copyright forces our illustrators to recreate every image from scratch, thus driving up the prices, and increasing production time. It is for this reason we do not typically sign over copyright to journals or individuals. 

Images may not be used without permission. If you see an image you would like to use, please contact us. 

Internships & Job shadowing

At this time, Stream Studios has no internship positions. For individuals interested in pursuing a career in the field of medical illustration, we recommend visiting the Association of Medical Illustrators (AMI) website. The AMI is an excellent source of information about accredited graduate programs and professional practices.
