Lung Cancer the Causing

  • The smoke is the most dangerous component of the cigarette. Chemicals formed during smoking trigger genetic mutations that lead to cancer. When people inhale cigarette smoke, they bring into their lungs tar that includes over 4,000 chemicals, some of which are carcinogenic (cancer-causing). Other inhaled chemicals in cigarette smoke that may increase the risk for cancer include cyanide, benzene, formaldehyde, methanol (wood alcohol), acetylene (the fuel used in torches), and ammonia. Smoke also contains nitrogen oxide and carbon monoxide, both harmful gases.

  • Nicotine itself may be a hazard. Some studies indicate that nicotine has a role in causing cancer.



    Cigarette Smoke. Smoking causes 87% of lung cancer deaths, and accounts for 30% of all cancer-related deaths. Cigarettes, nicotine, or both may contribute to lung cancer in one or more of the following ways:
    In general, chronic exposure to nicotine may cause an acceleration of coronary artery disease, peptic ulcer disease, reproductive disturbances, esophageal reflux, hypertension, fetal illnesses and death, and delayed wound healing.

    Sketches of cells

    These are cells that I have skecthed and changed from my book to photoshop.
     The same from the bottom. The cells show groups.

    These are cells that have been corrupted and mutated.

    I had problems with this.


    This is a cancer cell that I think is an idea to creating cells in my relation to my environment.

    Myeloid Cells and how Cancer spreads in the body

    The myeloid stem cell develops into one of three types of mature blood cells:

    The lymphoid stem cell develops into a lymphoblast cell and then into one of three types of lymphocytes (white blood cells):

    There are three ways that cancer spreads in the body.

    When cancer cells spread outside the blood, a solid tumor may form. This process is called metastasis. The three ways that cancer cells spread in the body are:

    • Through the blood. Cancer cells travel through the blood, invade solid tissues in the body, such as the brain or heart, and form a solid tumor.
    • Through the lymph system. Cancer cells invade the lymph system, travel through the lymph vessels, and form a solid tumor in other parts of the body.
    • Through solid tissue. Cancer cells that have formed a solid tumor spread to tissues in the surrounding area.

    Cancer development

    How Does Cancer Develop?

    The organs in our body are made up of cells. Cells divide and multiply as the body needs them. When these cells continue multiplying when the body doesn't need them, the result is a mass or growth, also called a tumor.

    These growths are considered either benign or malignant. Benign is considered non-cancerous and malignant is cancerous. Benign tumors rarely are life threatening and do not spread to other parts of the body. They can often be removed.
    Malignant tumors, however, often invade nearby tissue and organs, spreading the disease.
    The cells within malignant tumors have the ability to invade neighboring tissues and organs, thus spreading the disease. It is also possible for cancerous cells to break free from the tumor site and enter the bloodstream, spreading the disease to other organs. This process of spreading is called metastasis

    Cell mutation

    This is a cell mutating. Just creating cells on photoshop. Just to get some ideas. I will start skeching and creating more cells and more information about cancer.

    Cancer cells growing and Mutateing

    Malignant tumors are cancerous. Cells in these tumors can invade nearby tissues and spread to other parts of the body. The spread of cancer from one part of the body to another is called metastasis. So cells make up a lot of the body. So it can be that cells that grow in a group. when cells are growing, one cell can get damaged and then it  becomes a cell suicide. When a can of cells grow.  There maybe ONE cell that is damaged cannot be repaired. That ONE cell can infect all the good cells around it. Which then makes the cells mutate. This then can catch onto tissue in the body and cause damage all around the body. This can be fatal to the system. 

    These are infected cells that can mutate.

    A cell thats in the lungs. A idea concept to an infection of cells.

    Profile of Bill Plympton

    Fig 1: Plympton

    William "Bill" Merton Plympton was born April 30, 1946 is an American animator, cartoonist, and producer. Known for his Academy Award-nominated in 1987. Animated short Your Face and his series. Plympton illustrations such as his cartoons have been published in magazines such as Vogue and rolling stones.  

    Fig 2:  The Tunes

    These are visuals of movement. “Among other things there is a hotel that features the "fat falling pig suite," and the "laugh yourself to death suite," a dog does an Elvis impersonation, and people change size and shape while they do the tango.  Near the end of the film is a hilarious argument between to business men who settle their differences by trading various tortures.” All these ideas are expressive and show a wide imagination of how Plympton uses his technique. The interesting use of movement and visuals are fascinating because the way all the impersonations give a visual of an idol character. So this could mean an icon of a singer. In this short animation there is a lot of morphing of shapes and sizes of the character. This shows a wide perspective of the character and shows a different style. In the end of the animation it shows a business man trading tortures really disturbing and actually funny. This shows a quick animation of ideas. Want horrible things you can do to an opponent and trying to be able to over think the other person.

    Profile of Phil Mulloy

    Fig 1 Orginal

    Phil Mulloy is a British animator. Born in Wallasey, Merseyside and studied both painting and filmmaking. Mulloy worked as a director and a writer. Making live-action films until the late 1980s before becoming an animator. His animations often portray the dark side of human nature and religious values in a humorous and at times, shocking way. His visual style is primitive, often skeletal figures and minimalist backgrounds.

    Fig 2:  Cowboys

    Mulloy artwork is very simple and clear. “The paintings themselves are simple and unattractive, but taken as a whole; create absolutely gorgeous, expressive panoramas.”(Gandert) Mulley’s work shows basic silhouettes of his characters. The use of black ink makes the characters look simple. Though the faces of the cowboys bring at expressions.  The faces of the cowboys look unattractive because they looked distorted.  They have a slight evil about them. As the characters give a look of fear.  As the cowboys are carrying another body which they look to be a group. The way the characters have been created is less complex.

    Fig 3: intolerence
    Many scenes of Mulloy’s films have disturbing visuals. “It would be easy to brand many of his scenes as pornography if his visuals weren't so primitive and ugly that they cancel out any sense of eroticism.”(Matthews)  It is true that many of Mulloy’s short animations have scenes as similar to pornography visuals. They are so ugly that they cancel at the erotic because it is disturbing. He creates the opposite of a human anatomy but Mulloy does in a creative way and a disturbing one. The  black silhouettes work because though is ugly it fits in with the ideologies of the story and animation.

    key Thumbnails and Different start to story.

    These are more detail sketches of the two character chairs. Some of them is how the chair would move.On the bottom right corner I made a quick sketch  of Freddy the nervous chair being chased by fire. As he is a wooden chair. I thought this would be another good idea. But I am going with the idea he's running from the fact Freddy will probarly get scraped in a skip. As bottom image well show.

    Key images to the start of the story. These ideas I think work better.
