An editorial illustration designed as a spread for Scientific American magazine. It depicts the pathology of a brown recluse spider bite that results in tissue necrosis (Loxoscelism). With the help of Dr. Shelley Wall, the design went through several iterations before reaching the final version; the scientific content was checked and approved by Dr. John Wong. Illustrations were started in Adobe Illustrator, moved into Adobe Photoshop for digital rendering, and then arranged in the final layout with text in Adobe Illustrator.
