As others have said, this is the “most depressing infographic ever,” but I don’t think its that bad. Inspired and based on the Why Doctors Die article and Radio Lab podcast, this is my visual take on that material. Coincidentally the production of this graphic was interrupted by my own father-in-law passing away from cancer.
So this graphic I did was initiated by Ron Conway and then swept up a whole bunch of other people, mainly Bloomberg and the gun policy folks at the mayors office. They had some interesting data and the narrative fell into place from there. A bit of a different style for me as I would normally use photos to depict people but I felt that the sketch/watercolor has more gravitas.
What do you think?
