Texas Prairie Aerial

Texas Prairie Aerial

This was one of my more ambitious undertakings and an image I almost didn’t do. I had a lot of things going against me that made me second guess taking on this type of image. It was going to require a ton of Photoshop, the view is at an angle that tends to feel flat...

Texas Office Elevation

Texas Office Elevation

I created this illustration to tease out a few details with this project that I wasn't too sure about. For one, I had this idea of the meadow and trees flowing in and around the architecture so I wanted to setup an "easy" view angle where I could quickly test out how...

Big Office on the Prairie

Big Office on the Prairie

As much as I love working on the Porter Sq Station redesign, I needed to change things up a bit so I started designing my next personal render project. We have been working on a lot of really interesting projects lately at Design Distill, and it has been spurring some...

Porter Sq. Platform and Digital Display

Porter Sq. Platform and Digital Display

I have been working hard to wrap up the illustrations for the Porter Square project with only a few more illustrations remaining. Life has been getting busier and busier outside of this website. My visualization office and family are demanding more of my time than...

Porter Sq. Distant View

Porter Sq. Distant View

I was riding the bus into work last week and as it approached Porter Square, the sun was casting some amazing light accross the area. This experience got me motivated to illustrate the new station design as seen from further down Massachussetts Avenue. I love working...

Porter Sq. Axon

Porter Sq. Axon

I started off this image as a much more simplified version with very little texture and detail. Originally, it was going to be used for diagrammatic purposes with some text overlays. However, over time, it evolved into an image with more detail and texture, partly...

Winter Special #8

Winter Special #8

I was able to squeeze in another winter special illustration before the holidays roll around. For this year, I took things really dark and played up the red tones of the Porter Square Station design. The bus stop view is something that I have been planning in my head...

Porter Sq. Section

Porter Sq. Section

I have been developing several illustrations for the Porter Sq project the past couple of months and have finally finished one of the section diagrams. I decided to go a little old school with this one and keeping things monotone. With this style of illustration I am...

Moody Black and White

Moody Black and White

I recently stumbled across an article about an architecture photographer named Sajin Sasidharan and his black and white photos of Dubai. The images are extremely dramatic and he is very strategic about how he uses light to create clear focal points and manage visual...

The One Rendering Challenge 2019

The One Rendering Challenge 2019

Architizer has just announced The One Rendering Challenge that asks participants to create one rendering that powerfully communicates an architectural form or space and the experience of those that would inhabit it. I will join an amazing group of jurors who include...

KRob Competition 2019

KRob Competition 2019

The 45th Ken Roberts Memorial Delineation Competition (KRob) has long been one of my favorite architecture visualization competitions. I'm always blown away by the uniqueness and quality of work and how each year seems to draw out more imaginative and compelling...

Porter Sq. At Night

Porter Sq. At Night

Alright, I finally was able to finish up my design of Porter Square Station and therefore create a rendering revealing the new design. I kept the same view angle as the "Under Construction" renderings to finish off the series. This also meant I was able to reuse a lot...

Porter Sq. Under Construction

Porter Sq. Under Construction

I know, it has been a while. However, I have been doing a lot of work behind the scenes and I traveled to Vienna, Austria for the infamous D2 Conference. The Porter Square Project is taking longer than normal to design, partly because the site is so complex, and...

Porter Sq. Station: Existing Conditions

Porter Sq. Station: Existing Conditions

Porter Square Station is a place I pass through nearly every day and is the site I have decided to take on as my next design/illustration project. Since the station is nearby my office, it is how I get to and from my home, and how I get in and out of the city for...

Arch Viz Podcast 2019

Arch Viz Podcast 2019

I am a big fan of podcasts, maybe too much. I listen to them all day everyday while I work. Some of my all time favorites include 99% Invisible, Freakanomics Radio, Revisionist History, The Tim Ferris Show, This American Life, Comedy Bang Bang, Judge John Hodgman,...
