My first kidney...
I found this old cross section of a kidney I had drawn back in the early 90s(click on the pic to see the details). Before medicine, I was a wee lad and aspiring artist, with a particular talent for sketching human faces and bodies. However, I decided to play it safe and stick to drawing inanimate objects due to the Islamic prohibition on the depiction of the living.
I was fairly good at scenery and was told I had a future in art school. I'm not sure I would have turned out to be a professional though.
