The Lancet covers medical news, research and reviews on all aspects of clinical medicine and global health. It’s arguably the world’s most famous medical journal.

Ollie won a solo pitch to become their sole cover artist for 2021.

“This was a massive shock and a huge opportunity for me to expand on my interests in science and the human body, especially given the importance of public health lately” said Ollie.
