Protecting Chemical Facilities

Protecting Chemical Facilities

I was asked by Tyler at Security Management magazine to create a cover illustration based on the theme of chemical plant protection - specifically from the elements with flooding being a particular hazard. There was the opportunity to depict something quite dramatic and the idea of the hand lifting the plant from the crashing waves was well-received.

Security Management has a unique cover style: black or vary dark background with a dominant colour. The image here really dictated that blue should be the colour choice.

Identity

identity

A series of images on the theme of identity and how far our facial features determine who we are and how we view ourselves. This started by first adopting the hard, objective, view of the police mugshot but then evolved to be a less distinct, more abstract take on the individual faces.

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.

Blockchain

Blockchain

The YGS Group got in touch to ask for a concept cover illustration for The NAFCU Journal, the theme being 'blockchain'. A blockchain is a decentralized and distributed digital ledger that is used to record transactions across many computers, i.e. a network. Essentially I was looking for a way to contrast the old with the new. A phrase used in the copy 'stepping into the future' inspired the idea that the client was to approve.

A New Social World

A New Social World

This illustration was created for ASIS International to accompany an article about how inappropriate personal relationships are being formed, within the workplace, via social media. The initial sketch, referencing 'The Kiss' by Rodin was considered a touch risqué for the piece so a more romantic interpretation of the figures was requested.
