What I Did at Work Today: Hose, Bucket & Spigot

So in our illustration of streaming technology we're using some vector art of a hose filling a bucket drained by a spigot as a metaphor for the idea of a buffer. The spigot is actually from a very old project. I know the perspective doesn't exactly match, but I needed to wrap these graphics up and get to tying everything together.

What I Did at Work Today: Reel-to-Reel Tape Recorder

We needed some more art for a work project involving music streaming technology, so I got the chance to make a nifty reel-to-reel machine to help illustrate old methods of recording. Notice that the volume goes up to 11. I also feel like this would make a great T-shirt.

Environment Concept: Sunset Keep

This is the first of many pieces I want to create for my concept art portfolio. I decided that I have very little (none, really) in the way of environment concept art. This took about 10 hours to do, but I want to get to the point where I can knock out something like this in less than 5. I am determined to get better at doing landscapes and environments, which I would argue is definitely my weak point. I’ll be doing a lot more plein air painting and outdoor sketching. Hard to do in February in Iowa, though. I need a change of scenery big-time.
