The Visual Journey.
Fine art commissions and commercial illustration assignments begin with detailed communication with the client. This continues with questions and more info exchange, which begins the journey to a creative solution.
After different degrees of research into the subject matter or industry, I create a selection of concepts for the client to review and discuss. The approval phase can involve just one person or in many cases, different departments or individuals within a company. Once a final concept is approved, the final execution begins.
Below are some concepts that demonstrate the importance of a well thought-out drawing before execution. It is as important to me as the client that I have a 'visual map' to follow before I begin the finished piece. Some creative nuances are added or refined as the piece is created that enrich the image and bring the piece to life.
I execute most of my work traditionally, but am proficient in Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. These programs and tools are invaluable throughout the communication, creative development and execution processes.
