The illustrations in this portfolio came about as a result of a project I was working on for Broadwind Energy, a manufacturer of wind turbines headquartered in Chicago. The project involved creating artwork for a series of large display panels for a trade show booth. One of those illustrations, "Travel Gear," depicts a man with a suitcase which is covered with travel stickers. It relates to the manufacture of a single component — a gear — a process requiring mutliple steps that take it to seven different countries. Because of the size of the overall illustration, I felt the travel stickers on the man's suitcase needed to be detailed, so I created these 7 illustrations — each the equivalent of a full-page illustration — and incorporated them into the final artwork.
