Ebola Pathogenesis

Project Description

Visualization of Ebola was a challenge, which is why I chose it. The mechanisms of Ebola involve 'hiding' in the immune cells and infiltrating the entire body via blood vessels. By the time the body realizes the virus is an imposter, the disease has usually become advanced. While much of the image appears normal, the large blood vessel section to the right exhibits the eventual chaos that Ebola elicits.

Various considerations in content and color scheme were taken into account during the production of this piece in order to remain sensitive to affected cultures and maintain scientific accuracy. The visualization process began with pencil sketches, using 3D aids for perspective. Media: Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
