Sculpture Illustrations

Sculpture Illustrations


I had the honor of working with the iD3 Group in Atlanta on some pre-production sculpture illustrations for a Frosty the Snowman ICE sculpture walk though. I did over 35 front, side and top illustrations for the scene and characters of a Christmas Nativity scene. Jesus, Mary, Joseph, wise men, shepherds, and lots of animals scaled to life-size to be sculpted in SOLID ICE.

It was to be on display this Christmas at Atlantic Station in Atlanta, but by the time I was almost done illustrating the project it was canceled due to some permitting issues. It’s really too bad. I think it would would been awesome to see by all ages. I got paid for the work I did anyway and wanted to share some of them here. These are for the ice sculptures to use for size and reference.

I really enjoyed working on this extensive detailed project even though the production was cancelled. I hope to do more of this type of work.

It’s kinda hard to explain what it is so here is a quick video of something done by the same company for Gaylord Texan.


 

About the author
I have known from the first time I picked up a crayon that I wanted to be an artist. In 1992, I received Bachelor of Arts with honors with concentrations in Graphic Design, and Drawing & Painting from LaGrange College in LaGrange, Georgia. Right after that I attended the Illustration program at Portfolio Center in Atlanta, Georgia, graduating in 1994 winning several awards and honors. Worked as an on staff illustrator for a small design firm for a year and a half, then struck out on my own. Now for the past 18+ years I have tremendously enjoyed being able to pursue my love for art professionally as a freelance illustrator. I work/play from my home studio near Atlanta, GA. I have over 20 years computer graphics experience and I am fluent in all of the Adobe Creative Suite CC, Painter 10, Poser 9, and the latest hardware, all of which is in my studio. My image problem solving takes many forms that fit the clients needs. By combining various situations and objects into bold and interesting angles I am able to convey clear ideas to the viewer in a realistic manner. Most of my early work is in oils, but now I can achieve a similar look which is much faster and easily edited in the computer using my own special digital techniques. When I'm not illustrating, I love spending time with my family. I also enjoy doing home improvement projects discussing current news events, pop culture, bike riding and watching movies.
