Blodig alvor

Illustrations for an upcoming exhibition about blood at the Faculty of Health Sciences at UiT The Arctic University of Tromsø.

The three illustrations will be part of a wall poster explaining different types of thrombosis through the use of image and text. The nature of the exhibition called for a sober illustration style.

The first two illustrations show thrombosis, when a blood clot forms and blocks blood flow. The last illustration shows embolism, when a piece of a blood clot breaks loose and travels to another part of the body, in this case from the leg to the lung.
