I recently had the honor of contributing an illustration to a TEDx talk given in Ireland by client and friend, Dr Cara Augustenborg. Her talk was on the need to shift our focus from dwelling on climate change as a problem to focusing instead on the positive climate action already being taken, and replicating that where […]
Map highlighting coal plants that pose a threat to local drinking water in and around the Blue Ridge Mountains. I was happy to learn that I don’t live near any coal ash ponds, but am quite sad to see just how many of these power plants pose a significant or higher hazard rating. I’m not […]
Here are a couple of the latest map illustrations I did for Blue Ridge Outdoors magazine. Next month’s issue features a pirate map style!
I had couple of tight deadlines this week, so here’s a little something I did awhile back for an article on air pollution.
I just finished this personal piece I started awhile back, but got sidetracked by other work. This is my second Gulf disaster illustration so far, and I’ve got loads of roughed-out ideas in my sketchbook. Sadly, BP has provided me with a supply of material as almost as endless as the catastophe they’ve unleashed.
The good folks over at Illustration Friday teamed up with http://ripplesketches.blogspot.com/ and made this week’s challenge a way for illustrators to help raise money to help clean up the Gulf. I’ve been doing many of my own sketches on this subject and will be posting them here in the coming days.
I was up pretty late the other night trying to get this done in time for my final, and as I was working on the sign I realized, “This is it, my last homework assignment before I graduate. The end really is near!” Actually, it still could use a little work, but its already been […]
Here’s the completed illustration with layout for the polar bear article. I may need to tweek the colors once I’ve seen a printout. The light blue of the water highlights came out ridiculously dayglow before. Would love some feedback.
Sketch for an article about polar bears seen swimming out in open waters due to the receding of ice sheets. You can read the original article here. Somehow I ended up having to do yet another page layout with text. (Dammit, Jim! I’m an illustrator, not a graphic designer!) Will try to get the completed […]
Here’s the finished piece for the story on pharmaceuticals found in our drinking water, done for my independent study at VCU. It took some work, but I’m finally happy with it. You can read the original article here. You can see my original sketches for it here.
