This was an illustration project I completed while attending Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN. We were given a list of names and were to create an illustration based on the person and what he or she was most known for. Although this was completed early in my design career, it always stuck with me and is one of the few projects from that time period that I actually liked enough to keep.
Ronald Ross was an Indian-born British medical doctor who received the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1902 for his work on malaria, becoming the first British Nobel laureate, and the first born outside of Europe. His discovery of the malarial parasite in the gastrointestinal tract of mosquito led to the realisation that malaria was transmitted by mosquitoes, and laid the foundation for combating the disease.
