Small Medicine is a speculative fiction short story written by Genevieve Valentine. It follows the life of a young girl, Sofia, and her unique relationship with her "grandmother", who has been cloned and synthetically reproduced into a robot following her death.
This visual development project reinterprets Valentine's story through a child friendly approach. Exploring heavy and complex topics in children's media is not uncommon these days, so I wanted to challenge myself to do the same.
Sofia is later diagnosed with a medical condition and prescribed a medication known as NANIMED, which involves the use of highly effective nanorobot that enter the boy and immediately resolve any health complications.
With the weight of immortality on their shoulders, Sofia and her robot grandmother find a shared experience in being different from everyone else.
