Albert Einstein once said if you can’t explain something to your grandmother then you don’t truly understand it yourself. Fortunately my dearly departed grandparent was spared my half baked insights into the theory of relativity. I did show her my drawings however and she was impressed.

It’s important for me to understand the technical aspects of something when I’m drawing it. Maybe this would entail knowing the mechanics of a bicycle lock or maybe the physics behind the buoyant force of water. Just as writers should write about what they know, an artist should know about what they are painting.

If I am creating a series of instructional images for a product or system I will first learn about it by watching videos and doing trial sketches shared with the client. I put myself in the client’s and their end user’s shoes. If the project requires me to explore more abstruse subjects like astronomy, chemistry or medicine I make use of my personal library or the endless resources found on the internet.

I grew up in my dad’s machine shop where I learned to swing a hammer and solder wiring. I also learned to methodically take things apart, fix them and put them back together. This penchant for wanting to know how things work is a valuable asset when it comes to technical drawing. Nothing is more frustrating than poor assembly instructions and left over screws always worry me.

I have illustrated countless technical articles in magazines and books. I have designed and illustrated many how-to manuals and I have even illustrated entire scientific textbooks. The samples of my work shown here deal with fairly dry subjects. All it took was a little imagination to turn them into visually exciting learning tools. This can make the educational process that much richer and enjoyable. If you wish to see my technical work on Creative Pool please click (HERE).
