Egg-sharing, part 2

Some changes and new pics

Since my last post I’ve had to make some changes to some of my images for the Women’s clinic – and some of the more humorous bits have had to be taken out... including the T-Rex from the ‘Extinct family lines’ image. The poor old dinosaur really is extinct! Also a couple of other interpretations of egg-sharing, plants and flowers sharing their seeds.

Also as part of this brief (but ended not being used)…..the selfish gene!

The London Women’s clinic

I’ve just been doing some illustrations for a brochure about egg-sharing for the London Women’s clinic. I must admit I didn’t know much about the process of egg-sharing before, but the basic idea is that IVF patients who have a surplus of unused eggs can donate them to help women with fertility problems to have a baby. The process is beneficial to both sharer and receiver, as the receiver pays for the sharer’s treatment.

There are all sorts of issues involved and I thought the subject would be a tricky one to illustrate, but design company Silk Pearce who commissioned the work encouraged me to tackle it with a gentle humour. Here are some of the images I came up with.
