A 3D Pancreas and it's composition
The Client: Dr Fiona Docherty at the Barbara Davis Centre for Diabetes (BDC)
Produce two figures: a detailed diagram of an adult human pancreas, noting blood supply and innervation; plus an explanation of the different tissues (endocrine, exocrine and duct) and a close up on an Islet of Langerhans showing the composition of alpha, beta, delta and pp cells with significant blood supply.
The client was keen for the figures to be rendered in my signature traditional style, so I created the three illustrations with this in mind. We wanted the figures to have a 3D feel too, giving the viewer an idea of how the cells would look in the human body, as opposed to the traditional, flat view through a microscope.
