Show Management and I decided to upgrade the 2013 map and use a 3D model built in SketchUp much like we had success with on the St. Petersburg Power & Sailboat Show map. As in that case, the model can be rendered from different angles making a new look from year to year much easier and creating options for other supporting material as well. This map was challenging to me and my computer's capabilities. I made a fun fly-through video that is only a little over a minute long. Enjoy.

I have completed the map for the 2012 Newport International Boat Show for The Newport Exhibition Group. It was a nice opportunity to try to capture that New England feel in both my palette and my general design and illustration treatment. I screen captured most of the process of the map's construction and created a video from it. I hope you enjoy it.

I just completed an illustrated map for The Dover International Speedway in Dover Delaware. As usual I did all of the work in Adobe Illustrator. I made a time lapse video of the creation of the map as I worked. I hope you enjoy it.

I was recently subcontracted to create an illustrated map for Kimball Farm in Westford, Massachusetts. The map is intended for multiple uses ranging from handouts to "you are here signs" to billboards. The short term goal was to prepare the map for the new visitor's brochure.
This was a large project with lots of buildings and tiny details. The miniature golf course alone was a significant project, and I incorporated enough detail to keep the map interesting and fresh even when it is blown up very large. As usual I did all of the work in Adobe Illustrator.

I was recently contracted to create a map for The Ah Tah Thi Ki Museum highlighting some of Florida's Seminole Indian heritage.
I decided to record (most of) the project in on going screen capture and made a time-lapse video of the process from it.

I ran an ongoing screen capture as I created the map for the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. I didn't capture everything, but completing the project on time and up to standards was more important than screen capturing. The speed is doubled six times or more over giving you the ability to see how I work and the thought process behind it without being burdened by specifics of technique. The project was done primarily in Adobe Illustrator, although I do jump to other programs for a second every now and then as you will see in the video.

For the Plant City, Florida Dinosaur World map project I made a full six minute time lapse video of the creation process. Now that I've moved on to the Cave City, Kentucky map I decided to make a more compressed video more like a slideshow that is actually less than a minute long.
Although the project is not yet fully complete we are far enough along that I can share this video.

One of my recent large projects has been the new visitor's map for Dinosaur World in Plant City, Florida.
I recorded (most of) the project in on going screen capture and made a time-lapse video of the process from it. The project was done primarily in Adobe Illustrator, although I do jump to other programs for a second every now and then as you will see in the video. You will notice that I occasionally jump to the panoramic photography I shot on site.

I'm very excited to unveil the 2013 Palm Beach International Boat Show Map. This is just the latest of my 3D rendered maps, but in many ways the most ambitious and the first I have made a time lapse video from. The map encompasses an area known as the Palm Beach Waterfront and City Commons as well as extending south along Flagler Drive. This map includes a lot of buildings compared to most of my boat show maps. Buildings include Meyer Amphitheater, the PNC Bank Building, Esplanade Grande, The Strand, McKeen Towers, Trump Plaza and more. These landmarks should be of great help to visitors to the show in orienting themselves within their surroundings.

I'm pleased to unveil the 2013 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show Map. It's very exciting to have a new, more realistic version of the map. Of course working on one of the world's largest boat shows and working on a project so close to home are also exciting. The map encompasses an area from Las Olas Marina south to the south edge of Bahia Mar Yachting Center. Buildings on the map include The Bahia Mar DoubleTree by Hilton, Illini Condominiums, Courtyard Marriot, The Venetian, Leisure Beach Condominiums, Jackson Tower Condominiums, Las Olas Beach Club and more. These landmarks should be of great help to visitors to the show in orienting themselves within their surroundings. The original, vector based map was also revised and is used in the free boat show phone app.
The map will appear in the boat show program available for free at the show and on signage throughout the show. It will also appear in the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel and Yachts International Magazine.
