Dead Famous

We each got given an article from the Financial Times, that we had to create an illustration for. The one I got given was about the decline of autopsies in modern medicine and how scientists spend a lot of their time trying to figure out what killed historical figures. One line which stood out for me was "take a turn playing a kind of scientific parlour game", I then had the idea of doctors sat around playing card games and guessing up how the historical figures died, highlighting how time may be wasted on trivial things rather than advancing modern medicine.
