Hennepin County Medical Center needed to update their materials with high-quality custom maps that would effectively lead people to their state-of-the-art facility in downtown Minneapolis. Applications included internet, printed brochures and wall-sized posters.
My experience in vector illustration allowed me to provide HCMC with complex images that were easy to follow, attractive and stable for a variety of printing processes.

House with Mascot - A contractor's website was in need of educational (and fun) illustrations that would build on the slogan, "Contracting made simple" and on the friendly and approachable way they do business.

Trumpet - I nearly went cross-eyed drawing this image of an old collegiate Cornet that I enjoy playing from time to time. This particular angle was acquired by holding the instrument up against my face, closing one eye, and playing human camera as I attempted to draw the warped reflections of the room around me. I still wonder why I didn't work from a photo.
Hands - These charcoal and pencil studies are an attempt to exercise my left hand, which does not normally get the chance to click the mouse. It is good practice as I often prefer to spend a good percentage of my design time sketching ideas and setting up scan-able portions of a design in "reality" before locking myself into a computer-aided design program.
