I haven’t posted a series of my visual metaphors in a while, but I was pleased with the way this one turned out so I figured I would foist it on you, my loyal readers.
This series is about an engineer who is transitioning from a technically centered aspect of his career to more of a people centered aspect. There is doubt and a little trepidation along the way, but in the end, he sees it all working out well.
The future is unclear, but it will be bright.
The images are a combination of Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Sometimes I’ll sketch a little thumbnail, but usually I just dive right in and start pushing around pixels in response to my client’s written metaphor. I usually start with some images I have floating in my digital morgue. If I can’t find what I want, I’ll run out and shoot a picture of an object or a texture. If that doesn’t work, I’ll draw or paint the whole darn thing digitally. It’s really a number of techniques all thrown together, and it makes my client happy.
