Unknown Worlds

Here's the latest from my ongoing commission to illustrate the covers of BBC Focus Magazine Collection. 'Unknown Worlds' is the theme here and I went with a 3d helmeted glass head visual, probably inspired by the glass skull on the old tv show Arthur C. Clarke's Mysterious, I'm old. My original helmetless first rough can be seen above. See the rest of the collection on the site here.

Techno Techno Files!

Here are a couple of recent editorials for Exhibitor Magazine's Techno Files section on the latest innovations in the exhibition industry. The first spread and spots take on VR, biometrics and chatbots while the second set, adapted from the first, deals with drones, geofencing and conductive ink. A fun commission using lots of colour and familiar territory for me style-wise. See the work and related technology commissions on the site here.

Atomic Timekeeper

Here's a recent illustration for 5280, Denver's Mile High Magazine, on the local atomic clock at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder. It's the most accurate in the US but still manages to lose a whopping one second every 300 million years. Sloppy. This was created with some 3d modelling composited with 2d textures in Photoshop. I've included some of the roughs developed en route to the final piece, also visible on my site with related work here.
