Retinopathy of Prematurity
Medical illustration depicting the progression of retinopathy of prematurity. The goal of the project was to enhance and consolidate the understanding of tissue and organ morphology and pathobiology of disease through the production of scientific visualization, which includes accurate depictions of temporal processes. The project also involved extensive independent research and synthesis of scientific content, as well as advancing digital rendering techniques. The illustration functions as a stand-alone piece for an educated lay audience.
