As 2022 comes to a close, I would like to share a handful of images from the various projects in which I've been involved this year. In addition to these projects, I taught an online class on painting underwater ecosystems which featured some of these pieces.
All of these images were produced digitally, using a couple of different applications and a Wacom Cintiq stylus pad.
Lake Ecology - Introduction
The images shown below were completed for an online course for Michigan State, teaching participants aspects of lake ecology and waterfront property usage. These illustrations are also being used for promotion purposes to show how exciting and varied freshwater ecosystems can be. All images copyright MSU, 2022.
Exotic Invasive Aquatic Plats
The second set of illustrations, currently in process, are also being completed for MSU and are a continuation of a project begun in 2018. The goal of the project is to create images of invasive and native aquatic plant species for field identification purposes, to be used by the public for identification purposes as well as field volunteers and experts in the removal of invasive species. These are currently in process with an expected publication date in 2023.
