Illustration and Illustrated Map Design

Hiking Trail maps for Miami-Dade County Parks and Rec.

County Park Trail Maps

I just wrapped up these overhead maps of hiking trails in six Miami-Dade County parks. The Miami-Dade County Parks and Recreation Department is going to use these for a few things including a phone app. They wanted a simple, yet illustrated overhead look without much detail. They were fun to create and the people with the county were great.

Marina Illustration 2017

Double page spread revised illustration

Illustrated marina

You may recognize this illustration from the 2016 Stuart Boat Show.
For 2017 the client wanted to use the same image I created last year but they wanted to be able to run it as a double page spread and have a fresh spin on it. I worked up a new dynamic Florida sky, added a blinding sun and expanded the view to include more boats. I look forward to seeing it in print.

Tracks and Facilities Map/Architectural Rendering

Illustrated Raceway Map

I recently completed this rendering for a client planning expansion of a motorsports attraction. Very little of what you see presently exists. The yet to be completed areas were created based on rough site plans supplied by the client. What you see is actually a 3D model allowing me to render the facilities and tracks from different angles and at different levels of zoom as needed.

Illustrated Camp Map

My client, Great Blue Resorts, contracted me to create this illustrated map for Camp Ooch (short for Camp Oochigeas) in Ontario, Canada. It’s a great camp for kids with cancer.

The requirements were that I create a map of the camp for visitors to use for navigational purposes, but also a version that is black and white and serves as a coloring book page. Another request was that the black and white version have a hidden image game. I’ve posted a version without the hidden images so there are no spoilers for the kids. I had never done a black and white matching version of a map before so it was a fun little adventure for me. This map also has quite a few little people on it. This is something I haven’t done much of in the past either. I learn something new on most every project.
