The Physician-Scientist was asked to provide a cover image to represent his work. I worked with him to understand the science behind his team’s work. I then used scientific images as a basis to reproduce each element in the 3D environment.
The lab designed a macroporous collagen-based bioscaffold to facilitate transplantation of pancreatic islets.
The main challenge with this project was showing the interaction between the scaffold, the islets, the blood supply and the release of oxygen. Since a lot of this image is an artistic representation of the actual biological elements, I used a scan of the bioscaffold as the background to help bring scientific accuracy back into the composition.
