Project Description

The goal of this illustration was to give an overview of cystic fibrosis to an educated lay person, through synthesizing information about the underlying causes and progression of the disease into one cohesive two-page spread, while including a sympathetic human element. The effects of the disease are depicted at the levels of molecules, tissues, and organs. One of the challenges of this project was organizing the large amount of different kinds of information into a format that is approachable and coherent. Another challenge was working within the constraint of a two-page magazine spread.
