Julie Read is the muscle-lover behind the anatomy + art collaboration titled #musclestothemasses. Her goal is to make muscles fun and witty, but most of all, memorable. She's giving them a fresh look by taking marker to paper while adding distinctive commentary to help students of anatomy and muscle-enthusiasts alike enjoy learning about muscles. 

She believes education should be easy-to-access and readily available for those who want to learn. You can find all of the images she has created on her Instagram page, @itsjulieread. If having your own copy of either book will help you learn and you have to figure out how you'd pay for it, please email musclesotthemasses{at}gmail.com and we'll get you a digital copy. From the release of the digital versions of Muscles to the Masses, Julie will donate 5% of all profits to a rotating list of non-profits. She is currently donating to the Zinn Education Project.

When Julie isn't drawing muscles, you can find her coaching and massaging clients at multiple fitness facilities in Philadelphia where she lives with her teen-dog, Rosie.
