Welcome to the Journal of Biocommunication, the professional journal of the Association of Medical Illustrators and the BioCommunications Association. This JBC, issue 46-2, represents our second issue of the 2022 publishing year. I would like to thank our Management Board, our editors, our advisors, and our authors for their contributions to our success.

Our first JBC Showcase features the amazing work of AMI member and UIC faculty member, John Daugherty. John was the recipient of the AMI's Lifetime Achievement Award at AMI's 2022 annual meeting in Des Moines, Iowa. In this Showcase, John shares a number of his award-winning images with us.

Our second JBC Showcase features the award-winning natural science photography of Charles "Chip" Hedgcock, a medical/scientific photographer from Arizona. Chip has combined his love of the outdoors with more than 30 years of natural science photography. Chip was honored as the 2016 BioCommunications Association's Louis Schmidt Laureate.

Our JBC Gallery features the Professional Category award winners from the Association of Medical Illustrators' 2022 annual meeting Salon. We think that you'll enjoy seeing these award-winning images and media.

We appreciate the ongoing support from our JBC community around the world. In particular, we acknowledge the support of the Association of Medical Illustrators and the BioCommunications Association. It's a privilege to be the professional academic journal of these two organizations.
