my name is joel b. floyd, jr. i am an artist and musician, and i have a master's degree in medical illustration. my animations and illustrations related specifically to the health sciences can be found at betheamedicalmedia.com; all other artwork is in this "portfolio" section.

   i also enjoy writing, recording, and performing music. i create soundtracks for medical animations and, before starting graduate school, i was in a band called "pandercakes".

   i'm fascinated by biological and evolutionary processes, and a large part of my inspiration for images, animations, and sound design comes from great cinematography.
