The body has been depicted through illustration for many years. Illustration has been used to explain the inner workings of the body, for example medical drawings showing how organs work in the body. Life drawing is also used within illustration to accurately depict the body but it can also be about capturing the movement of a person and portraying it on a page. Illustration in comics or books, like the one from the comic Neurocomic above, can also be used to explain how things within the body work in an artistic and simple way.
