Scientific Illustration

Concept art for a futuristic bicycle, this bicycle does not have chain or gears but magnets. Using technology like the Bullet trains in Europe I feel this is a possibility. Also with magnets sense they are not touching each other there will be no friction. This view is looking threw the front wheel at the rest of the bicycle.

The watercolor paper got a little wrinkled when I scanned it.

Type and Image

I view type as a graphic image itself, looking past what words say and the effect it has with the rest of the illustration.(Typography)


More graphite on location than watercolor in studio.

Scientific Illustration

I find that Orchids provide the perfect specimen for documentation. They bloom for months allowing for acurate illustrations from direct observation. Along with thousands of species with each one having its one qualities it will be a long time before it becomes repetative.

These are just a start of full illustration soon to come.

" Fool the eye"
A winter holiday theme for the Richmond Times Dispatch. People love there coffee, almost as much as warming up there hands near an "open fire".
The Peregrin Falcon is the fastest diving bird in the world! and is well adapted in all parts of the world. Nesting on high clifts with binocular vision.
My cousin Eddie is music producer and the words on his shirt are lyrics from a song he wrote.
I like to "study" people before sketching them, trying to read there emotions, than wait for a vulnerable moment than draw. When I get back to my studio I like to experiment with of course watercolors.
Sketches with pencil in class, than taken home to finesh with watercolor.
A lady I was sitting next to in Cabell library. She kepted moving so I focused on the most interesting parts.
