Here's an animation I produced earlier this year which promotes a water phantom system used in medical physics quality assurance procedures. The animation walks through the assembly and setup of the system to show its unique features and benefits. This is a system I helped design so it was great to produce an animation demonstrating its general use in a dynamic way. There's also a part two of this animation showing comprehensively how the system is setup which I may post in the future.
It's almost here! The Team 242 David Browne Ride 2016 begins in just a few days and everything is ready to roll. I was lucky enough to work with the team and design the theme and materials for this year's nearly 500 mile ride along the historic Natchez Trace, aka the "Devil's Backbone". Benefits for this awesome event support the American Heart Association so please check out the Team 242 webpage to donate and follow the team on their journey!
Here's an animation I recently produced which shows the fundamentals of a how a particular component works. I don't want to state the specifics because it's important that my client gets the attention on the topic!
This project was a terrific experience because I had an opportunity to visit their facility and learn from the experts. We then translated this experience into an animation to help others learn and understand the broad scope under which these components are used.
I recently finished this animation showing the process of taking a large block of cheese down to smaller blocks, then shreds and finally being packaged and scanned for contaminants. Animating the shreds was challenging and required some complex particle physics animation, but I'm quite happy with how it turned out. This animation, along with other previously Drawski-produced animations were on display at the 2016 International Cheese Technology Expo in my client's booth to help the sales staff communicate how their innovative systems work. I was lucky enough to visit the expo in Milwaukee yesterday and it was amazing to see some of the equipment in person (and try some cheese samples of course!).
Since everything I've been working on so far in 2016 has been very long term and/or proprietary, I wanted to share a few fun drawings I've done recently. First is "Wrestleraunt", which was a drawing for and inspired by a misunderstanding of my friend's son over breakfast. "Oh, restaurant! I thought you said wrestleraunt! ...Wait, that would be pretty crazy!"
Next is "Shamwich" which was a birthday card drawing for my wife, whose birthday is also St. Patty's day. Finally, the most recent flyer for a club my wife and I host at our local library, featuring some high flying hardware. I'm looking forward to posting about some of the exciting projects I've been working on, so stay tuned in the next few weeks for more.
The second in a series of Drawski produced brine system animations, this video shows the sequence in which cheese is transported into a brine pool and removed via a "pick and place" style system. Depending on the configuration, this system can be absolutely massive and we included a human model for scale, affectionately known as "Chez Wheelie" around the studio. I think he'll be appearing in future animations, so keep an eye out!
Here's a new Drawski animation showing an innovative software approach to patient plan QA using the portal imager on a linear accelerator to track treatments daily and over time. I'm using some interesting visual approaches by overlaying patient images on 3D renderings to correlate the results with the real-time events, highlighting the speed with which one can get feedback and make adjustments to the treatment plan.
I recently had the opportunity to provide some illustrations to a medical physicist working on behalf of the Australasian College of Physical Scientists & Engineers in Medicine (ACPSEM). She created a poster helping people understand medical physics, including the tools physicists use to do their job. The illustrations depict these tools, such as a linear accelerator, electrometer and water phantom. Being the field I previously worked in exclusively, it's great to keep in touch and continue to help this important profession with visual communication tools.
Just finished this animation showing the process of putting cheese into a brine system to continue a series of industrial cheese equipment animations. The cheese gets loaded into a series of tall cages and submerged in brine for several hours before being unloaded and sent onto the next stage in the process. There are a number of things in this animation which would be virtually impossible to demonstrate by simply filming an actual system!
It's been a busy summer! Most of my recent work has been 3D animation based, but I wanted to share a few recent personal illustrations to mix things up. I've been continuing my softer, shaded style across a range of subjects as seen here. I've currently got a number of more technical subjects in the works which I plan to post soon.
