Recently, Todd Ross, a communications manager at the Michigan Osteopathic Association (MOA), took a quick break at work to show off his caricature skills by completing a quick sketch of A.T. Still, DO, MD. The drawing delighted many at the MOA, so the organization shared it with the AOA and also created the short sketch video featured above. Below is an earlier version of the caricature.
Todd Ross joined MOA in 2014 as the manager of communications and is responsible for various tasks related to communications and the management of digital platforms used by the MOA. A graduate of Michigan State University, where he completed a multidisciplinary degree that included public policy and communication arts, Todd has been in the association industry for over 15 years.
He has been interested in art, and specifically caricature, since middle school where he “communicated” to his teachers through his art. His white board drawing of Dr. Still took less than two minutes to complete. Photographs of a bust of Dr. Still (Andy) are often featured on the various MOA social media platforms as a way to promote osteopathic medicine and connect with DOs.
