At the start of 2019 I was contacted by Bambi Gardiner from Oaka Books, a specialist publishing company that strives to produce unique, short and concise revision guides for visual learners who may struggle with reading, concentration or processing issues. The brief was to design 60 illustrations, including 5 cartoons, for their upcoming booklet called the 'Structures and Functions of the Kidneys' that were in keeping with their in-house vector style (including the background pink globe effect) that would ensure clarity in the delivery of the learning content for the students. This was a great opportunity for me as an illustrator already working with 'sciart' images about marine life to learn about these aspects of how the human body works, as well as to revisit vector style art working, something I have not worked with since starting the creation of my current ink art portfolio.
The results of this rather large commission can be seen below, presented as a grid of all 60 images that can also be viewed as a slideshow by clicking on any of them individually. I have included a caption for each based on the accompanying text that will feature in the booklet that will hopefully provide some explanation for each of them, viewed by hovering over each image.
I have since received draft copies of the booklet in production from the publishing house, which is looking fantastic, and will add images of the final text book once I have a copy!
