Creative Concept

Having worked in the development world for over 20 years, I'm quite familiar with the tools. Many projects I've worked on have required strong problem-solving skills; be it in finding ways to negotiate software conflicts between platforms, or find good design strategies in creating architecture. As a practicing visual artist, I find the process used in order to arrive at coherent aesthetic decisions is very similar to the process of finding elegant solutions in engineering; it comes down to good problem-solving and the ability to balance an equation.

Work Samples

Best of:

This information in a history timeline. 2023.
A visual autobiography written in frontend.
2d DESIGN/CODE: SVG with inlined JavaScript Animation. "AEROSOL" 2020.
I have the habit of making gratuitously complex and large-scale vector artworks in illustrator. In this example, some JavaScript code has been built into the SVG artwork which allows for navigation and structuring of a narrative.
3d DESIGN/CODE: Model of the last 5 days of electron excitation in the earth's ionosphere.
This project involves collecting raw-text data at 10 minute intervals, refining that data with a little gauss, and displaying it. The bounds of the image map to the surface of the earth. click here for more detail. Drag to pan, scroll to zoom, right-click (or chift-click) and drag to rotate.
3d DESIGN/CODE: Earth Model.
This project involved finding creative ways to raycast against line-geometries (for labals/interaction). Drag to pan, scroll to zoom, right-click (or chift-click) and drag to rotate.

Potentially Interesting:

3d DESIGN/CODE: Traversible Nodes 3d Model.
Having started experimenting with three.js in 2014 and moved onto other projects, this was my first re-entry into the world of three.js c2021. This project included testing the use of static SVG vector-graphics.
3d CODE: Dynamic model generation.
I find that importing existing 3d models (rabbits, teapots and the like) is pretty dull. This experiment generates a 3d model along a path. You will need to click the viewport to start. Some variables can be changed.
3d CODE: Particles in a box.
This is a study of "wind" on a group of particles contained in a cube. Many variables can be changed using the simple HTML interface (top-left).
3d CODE: Particles with more complex physics.
This experiment deals with modeling particles with physical properties. In this case I've opted for a "substance" that seeks to cohere/agglomerate but that is rather fragile to impact.

Vector Artwork (illustrator):

Following are some examples of work in Adobe illustrator. These examples are limited to monochrome work because it shows my design approach clearly. Some of these works are a bit dated (my most recent noteworthy vector artwork is the "AEROSOL" project above).
