“Wellcome Collection” – collage series

I was commissioned by the Wellcome Collection in London to illustrate their latest article “The Soul in the Stomache” and was tasked to create a series of digital collage illustrations from the museum’s historic image archive!
I mixed a combination of digital scientific images & MRI scans, historical anatomy illustrations and traditional lithographs.

The illustrations were made for their latest article, discussing the 17th century, the alchemist and physician Jan Baptist van Helmont, who researched the idea of where your soul is located in your body…
either The Brain, The Heart or… The Gut?!

The full article can be read on the Wellcome Collection website, where you will see all 4 of my digital collage illustration in situ.
