I just put together this brief tour of a model of the Sunset Harbour neighborhood of Miami Beach I created a while ago for an illustrated map.
Of course the map was only rendered from one angle, so a lot of this work goes unnoticed.
Most of my illustration work is done on the computer now. Clients generally prefer it and it is easier for me to make revisions. The reproduction quality can be better as well since it doesn’t have to be photographed or scanned. That having been said, a certain look and feel as well as a certain amount of soul is lost by using the computer all the time. Here are some examples of works I’ve done by hand over the years.
