ANN ARBOR, Michigan (AP) — World-renowned medical illustrator Gerald Parker Hodge has died at his home in Michigan. He was 91.

His daughter, Melinda Hodge, says Hodge died Thursday in Ann Arbor after a fight with cancer.

Hodge was a longtime professor at the University of Michigan, where he founded the master's program in medical and biological illustration in 1964.

He was best known for his medical and biological illustrations, which appeared in hundreds of journals and books and earned him several best-in-show awards from the Association of Medical Illustrators.

He also was prominent as specialist in "fool the eye" paintings, in which objects appear three-dimensional and trick the mind into believing they are real.

Hodge's daughter says he "lived through his art" and continued to show his work until about six months ago.
