schematic illustrations on several relevant parasitic species


The brief was to illustrate a series of flipcharts for animal doctors to explain the main parasitic disease of dogs and cats to pet owners. 

Veterinary parasitology is a very specific field, given the multitude of hosts and parasitic species. Having previously worked as a researcher in this area, I knew the poor investment that has been made. 

I worked in a semi-schematic style, with an harmonious color scheme. My goal was to create illustrations that, while accurate and informative, were not too graphical or disgusting for the general public to observe.
