These logos and graphics were created in Adobe Illustrator. As "vector" artwork, they can be resized without pixelization. They'll look sharp at postage stamp through billboard sizes.
Digitally painted, these art images convey mood and scene. Corel Painter, with its myriad brushes, is my preferred software for digital painting.
Digitally painted, these artistic maps take the facts of geography and transform them into wow!. I start these maps from elevation data, combine them with GIS data for features like rivers and lakes, and then repaint them in software.
