I just recently finished another addition to an ongoing personal project tentatively called 'Mythos'. I was trying to portray Aphrodite with a similar amount of terrifying beauty and an air of reverence that a character like Galadriel (LOTR) imposes on all that come before her. I utilized design elements that are meant to mimic uteral shapes that speak of fertility and birth.

I really enjoyed information design class when I was still in school and had the pleasure of tapping into that particular design aesthetic for a recent editorial gig for The Apple Magazine. The article was about a five decade long collaborative cancer study on over 300,000 people across Canada. Using vectors certainly helped with the quick turn around time for this assignment and perhaps something to be explored more.
I also had the opportunity to do an illustration for the University of Alberta Alumni Faculty Magazine. Back in the early 60's, students had their campus library smoking space taken away from them in order to make way for more books. Illustration is displayed sans headline text.
Well that's all for now folks.
