Mock Scientific American Cover


This cover story was referring to the protein-folding video game “Foldit” where in 2011 players solved the structure of an HIV protease. The purpose of this Mock Scientific American cover was to grab the readers attention with a clever image evoking the style of Scientific American covers. This illustration was also intended as a learning exercise, as my first attempt at creating an illustration using a 3D modelling software (Cinema 4D).
