Epilepsy - Mental Landscapes Series

I first thought about doing a poster for epilepsy after a friend mentioned that her son had the condition. As I was researching online, I noticed people described the experience as "a jolt of electricity," or "being on a rollercoaster," followed by a period of confusion and disorientation. I considered volcanic fissures, waterfalls, but ultimately decided on an image of lightening. It doesn't quite capture the aftereffects of a seizure, but it did seem to capture a general feeling.
