This illustration was inspired by the Wired article "The Devastating Allure of Medical Miracles". The article is about doctors who offer life enhancing transplants, usually hands, rather than life saving transplants, such as organs. The procedure seems like a wish come true, but usually ends up being a nightmare. The medication necessary to keep your body from rejecting foreign body parts can have drastic side effects, including kidney failure.
Below is my illustration placed into the Wired article, in place of the original photography that was used.
