Nano-Cotton :: New Internationalist

Did this one for the fine folks at The New Internationalist magazine . The story rumminated on the possible future of traditional fabrics and textiles and wether they might one day be replaced with ones that incoroporate nanotechnology. Loved working on this one . Enjoy!


My prelim sketch changes somewhat when I proceed to the final. I wanted to introduce a more decorative motif to the composition. The AD also wanted to see more of her face.

Thanks for the comment, Dominic.

Nice image. That hand looks like it's almost coming out of the image...cool. Like the simplicity of your lines. It appears from your blog that you get plenty of illustration work. May I ask you how you promote yourself?
