Intestinal Organoids for Modelling Intestinal Development and Disease
The Client: Dr Nicholas Hannan
To produce a series of three figures to accompany a review of intestinal organoids, published in the Royal Society's journal Philosophical Transactions B. The figures demonstrated the different tissues present in both the small and large intestine; detailed the factors introduced to an intestinal stem cell to maintain it's multipotency or stemness and how this is measured; and the methods which could be used to harvest stem cells and grow intestinal organoids.
Each figure was carefully researched, sketched, and finally hand drawn using ink. The individual elements were scanned, coloured and composited digitally, so that a vibrant colour palette could be used to easily identify the individual cell types.
