Vector illustrations created for a guest journal review published in Nature Reviews Endocrinology to illustrate the effects of endocrine disrupting chemicals

To create these figures, I worked with the researchers to summarize a considerable amount of information and to make sure all the key points of their message were visible in the images. Having looked at many of their figures, one can see that Nature has a very specific and unique style, so I tried to work as closely to it as possible and even use similar colors.

These are the final images I created, which were sent to the editor for review. The figures used in the article were then further modfied by the editing team to match their publishing guidelines, as you can see in the original article.
