A 2-page spread about cystic fibrosis, including explanations about the cause and progression of the disease.
To add a sympathetic human element to the illustration, I decided to integrate portraits of a patient suffering from and surviving the disease into the rest of the didactic piece.

First, several tissue studies were done to familiarize myself with the landscape and the progression of cystic fibrosis at the tissue level.
Small, quick thumbnail sketches were made to experiment with different layouts for the final illustration. One was then selected to undergo iterative revisions based on instructor and peer feedback.
After many revisions, a comprehensive sketch was sent to the content expert for approval before rendering.
Before beginning rendering, several colour mockups were made. I tried several schemes including complementary, cool, and warm. Based on instructor and peer feedback, I decided to go with the complementary colour scheme for the final illustration (top right).
