"the mind is like an insect's wing, it is fragile and easily broken" -Unknown (II)

In my quest to create an illustrated medical journal I have been researching the different articles i have chosen, the first about synthetic blood, and the second about the psychological triggers of depression.

I found the quote above while I have been researching and have decided to incorporate the insect wing motif into my work, the triangle represents the consciousness as triangles can be associated with religious belief (e.g. the holy trinity) and the mind, body and the soul. The shape also refers to the patterns made by writing the chemical symbols for the elements found in the body.
