Project Description

This illustration was created to depict the cardiovascular health risks associated with temperature in one’s environment. the same hot and cold temperature ranges which pose little to no concern to a healthy individual can be very real and a potentially life threatening factor to those who already have a compromised and weak cardiovascular condition in a variety of ways.

To visually emphasize the connection in temperature and specific health risks hot and cold can pose, corresponding and conflicting light sources on the heart were implemented. The heart itself is centered in the piece while these respective conflicting light source shine on the heart converging in the center. the graphic elements are aligned with the light sources to further reinforce the temperature dependent message of the illustration.
