The Vanguard

The Vanguard

Marc from Casual Astronaut got in touch and asked if I would be able to create a cover illustration for the first issue of The Vanguard, a magazine highlighting cancer research and treatment at UT Southwestern in Dallas. The brief was to illustrate the theme of transformative care from lab to patient. I supplied three sketches and this was the one chosen by the client. A request was made to subdue the visibility of the internal organs and to use a green/blue palette for the final artwork.

Marquette Nurse

Marquette Nurse

I was approached by Marquette University to create a cover image for their Marquette Nurse magazine. They wanted a forward-looking, modern, optimistic image that represented taking a path into nursing. The initial sketch, below left, was liked subject to a couple of amendments, elimination of the pills (sensitivities to news headlines concerning opiods) and addition of another nurse. There were no colour requirements so I was free to use my own scheme. I like to use colour in a graphic way and not to be overly concerned with realism. Also, wherever possible I try to avoid skin colours, facial features and any kind of personal iconography as I prefer my figures to be perceived as an 'everyman' unless there is a specific reason to do otherwise. The finished artwork was very well-received and published Jan 2018.
