"Like all artists, I have a tendency to draw what is going on in my life. In summer of 2017, I was going through testing to become a kidney donor, which led to a series of drawings of transplantable organs. The series began with a kidney (of course) and eventually expanded to include the heart, lungs, and liver as well." - Bethany
Fun Fact #1
"Hepar" is Greek for "Liver." Why Greek and not Latin, like the rest of the series? Because the word for "liver" in Latin refers more to one's being or essence, while the Greek term refers to the actual organ, so it is more often used in medical terminology.
Fun Fact #2
The liver is able to regenerate itself, which is why it is one of the few organs you can donate when you are alive. How much do they take? About 30%.
