A story I illustrated for IEEE Spectrum Magazine has been recognized with a Grand Neal Award for Best Single Article, a top honour in business-to-business editorial publications. A Shocking Truth [PDF] exposed the design, engineering and maintenance problems that commonly cause automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to fail. My contribution was a half-page cutaway line illustration revealing the fatal flaws [...]

I’ve been fascinated with augmented reality (AR) since learning about projects like Layar and WordLens. These apps combine the camera, GPS, gyros, processing power and constant connectedness of smart phones to add layers of meta-information on top of the world around us. My interest in this application of technology and information should come as no surprise—technical [...]
Straight-up technical illustration to accompany an AAA Living article explaining how car batteries work and why they fail. I’ve been working in a variety of styles recently, so it was nice to do something more representational. Being a technical illustrator is like being a designer, in that ‘style’ is just another tool for communication. Thanks [...]
b.spirit! is Brussels Airlines’ inflight magazine on long haul flights to Africa. AD Marten Sealby contacted me to illustrate a story for the magazine about the re-introduction of ferry service across Lake Victoria which borders Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya. The ferries to be used are interesting because they would be designed and built in Seattle, [...]
If recent projects are any indication, energy is a hot topic. From advances in sustainable production, to energy independence, to efficiency and control, the issues are boiling over and innovation is gathering steam. Above: Four solar energy technologies illustrated: photovoltaic panels, solar water heating, solar power tower and passive solar heating. Right: Cutaway illustration of [...]
French company Nheolis manufactures a range of beautiful, compact, efficient and sculptural wind turbines. What I like about sustainable design is the constant innovation–the ongoing reassessment of the problem and development of new and unconventional solutions. This cutaway illustration reveals the typical inner workings of a wind turbine: drive shaft, gearbox, brake and generator.
I’ve begun distributing a promo postcard, “Information Matters.” Using controversial subject matter, the taser device, it explores the importance of information, and the clarity with which it can be communicated visually, in compelling and provoking viewers. The images used on the postcard can be seen (and zoomed) in the technical illustration portfolio. If you’d like [...]
Recently completed a cutaway illustration of an 80-foot flybridge megayacht and its cabin. Technical illustration allows for the communication of a vast amount of visual information. In this case, the entirety of the vessel – inside and out – can be presented in a single image. The quality of design, materials and finishes can be [...]
Many thanks to Charlene for featuring my Camry Hybrid Cutaway Illustration and my website on Illustrophile. My work is in good company on her blog.
