My Illustration for the American Journal of Psychiatry

September 7, 2007

I created a cover illustration for the September issue of The American Journal of Psychiatry. The title is Bipolar Depression and Family Support. This is of course in conjunction with Dave’s featured article and research findings, “Intensive Psychosocial Intervention Enhances Functioning in Patients With Bipolar Depression: Results From a 9-Month Randomized Controlled Trial.”



  1. Your art represents so much research and beauty that I had to respond to it.

    I discovered your merit badges while reading “Well-behaved Women Seldom Make History”. Images of the Christine de Pizan at the Computer with the Green Dragon bounce around in my head continuously, so I had to thank you for producing an image that (for me) encompasses the 24 years I forged some respect as a “geek-lady” in a male world. 3 years ago, I embraced the “green dragon” and now work for myself as a happy care giver to the animals that people leave behind when they travel. Thank you for the intended or unintended consequences of your art.
