Prism Break

Here's a new cover illustration for IBM Systems Magazine on optimising your 'AI Journey'. The abstract brief required a visual that somehow showed important information being identified and channelled from multiple data sources. The first works-in-progress show the initial classic prism idea and multi-sided object visual that were combined for the cover concept. The finished illustration was put together with 3d and 2d techniques. See this and other work for IBM publications on the site here.

The Science Of Health And Happiness

An exciting commission came through earlier this year to illustrate 12 upcoming covers for the BBC Focus Magazine Collection. Each volume (or bookazine, if you will) has a particular theme and these first two issues concentrated on the science of Health and Happiness respectively. I saw it as a good opportunity to flex my, still puny, 3d skills and create some relatively bold and simple illustrations that convey the themes clearly. More to come on this series as the year progresses. You can see them on the site with further BBC Focus work here.

Head Games

I'm playing catch-up on the blog after a busy old month of work and travel. Here's a recent cover illustration for Wall Street Journal's Review section for an article entitled 'Head Games: The Mental Tricks Of Athletic Endurance'. Unlike this delayed post the illustration was created in time for the, then, upcoming Winter Olympics. I created an alternative dark version that was used on the website. You can see it on the site with previous Wall Street Journal work here.
