Headaches and Treatments

Tammy from Consumer Reports got in touch and had a piece about self-care strategies for treating headaches/migraines. Something quite straightforward was required, depicting the problem and the three solutions for treatment i.e medicines, dietary changes and exercise.

Above is the printed page and a few initial sketches showing how the migraine could be depicted.

An AI Odyssey

I was given the working title “An AI Odyssey” intended to play off of Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.
