Mountain Lodge Ground Study

This will be a quick post, but I wanted to show another image that I have been working on. This illustration was put together to study the ground around the base of the tower. I wanted to iterate on some ideas I had for the landscape/hardscape relationship as well as...

Mountain Lodge Light and Shadow

As I continue to develop my Mountain Lodge Project, there are a couple of areas that I am using visualization to study the design a little more closely. One of the key moments is a bridge that connects the tower to the mountain side. I had envisioned this space to be...

Mountain Lodge Intro

Below is a sneak peak of my next project that I will be illustrating over the next several months. As with all of my projects, I have tried to setup several scenarios that I am interested in visualizing. For this project, specifically, the overarching concept is of a...

Portfolio Vol. 5

In the works. Expected Release: 2018/2019

Portfolio Vol. 4

My latest portfolio released in 2016, Portfolio Volume 4 discusses new layout  and illustrations/diagrammatic styles. Over 35 posts break down each illustration and explores ideas of composing and refining portfolio presentation techniques.

Portfolio Vol. 3

Released in 2014, Portfolio Vol. 3 builds off of Portfolio Vol. 2 by introducing a new workflow that includes Indesign to better manage page and text organization. New image styles such as x-ray illustrations and exploded axons are introduced.

Portfolio Vol. 2

Developed in 2007, this was my second portfolio created after grad school. The layouts are relaxed with the text playing an important role on many of the pages. Except for the thesis spreads, each project uses no more than 2 spreads to describe the project requiring a denser use of text and images in the layout
