American Maritime Officers Star Center Campus Map

I have just completed the new map for the American Maritime Officers’ Star Center Campus in Dania Beach, Florida. STAR Center is a not-for-profit maritime training school that is the top choice of inland and ocean-going professional mariners throughout the world. In short they train ship captains, engineers and the like. It was a fun map to create and I got to meet some great people while working on this project. I hope this new map helps mariners better navigate the Star Center Campus while they are in training.

Electric Snake Illustration

Staff Of Asclepius

I was recently approached by Florida International University requesting a special illustrated Staff Of Asclepius. Instead of the usual snake they wanted a kind of hybrid electrical cord snake with a head that was an electrical plug. Here are some initial sketches…

This illustration is to be used on electrical device charging stations that are kind of like kiosks or lockers. They requested that I used the blue that appears in the FIU logo.

Initially there was a little bit of confusion and my first snake head sketches show an aggressive snake. It turned out that they wanted a cute, approachable snake, so I adjusted my direction accordingly. They also didn’t like the chopped off appearance of the head, so I switched to having the prongs of the plug protruding out of the mouth. They are very pleased with the results.

I tried to keep a very geometric shape to the head so that it would reflect the engineered look of a manufactured plug. I added a hint of snake skin to the finished illustration to give the cord a reptilian look.

It was a fun project. I hope you enjoy seeing it.
