Popular Mechanics


My biggest editorial assignment yet! This was a full page illustration for the magazine Popular Mechanics, in an article on the imagined future of space tourism. They wanted to see modern tech illustrated in a retro style. While I usually pull visual elements from old-fashioned sources, I don't often draw science-fiction, or even ultra modern technology. As is probably pretty evident, I watched a lot of 2001: A Space Odyssey and Wall-E for inspiration.

It was a fun change of pace, and I really hope to get more of these assignments (pardon the pun) ... in the future!
