Much original research went into Steve’s many detailed illustrations for his embryological series of books—this one for Pictorial Human Embryology.  The illustrations are very large (2+ feet high), created in pen and ink, thereby capturing the amazing detail of fetal development.

Steve was a student of Ralph Sweet in San Francisco, and served on the faculty at the Toronto Program.  He authored a series of Pictorial Anatomy atlases of comparative anatomy.
