Nature Photonics

I was recently approached by the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Columbia University, NY, to create illustrations based on their research into non-invasive laser vision correction. The aim was to submit them to Nature Photonics magazine to support their manuscript and be selected for a cover feature. Very happy to report one of the illustrations was chosen and is on the current issue as we speak!
I worked on four images based on some relatively jargon-heavy discussions and diagrams of the process and created three interpretations of the external eye and femtosecond laser and one micro view of crosslinks in collagen fibrils - still with me? I used some 3D modelling to create the laser and eye close-ups before bringing the renders into Photoshop to play with colours and texture. You can see them on the site with related work for Nature here.
