John Hopkins Magazine Illustrations

These photo montage style illustrations were created for John Hopkins magazine. They are a mixture of photo manipulation, CGI, and Photoshop illustration.

I have been producing illustrations for John Hopkins Magazine over the last three years. This photo montage was a spread illustration in 2012 for an article on doctor's exercising as part of their daily routine. 
This sketch was created as a guide for composition. The client requested the scene be flopped for the final illustration.
The client also wanted a second illustration in a very different style. They selected my Jim Morrison portrait below as an example of the desired look for this spot on an later page for the article.
I create a drawing for the project that captures the essence of the style while showing the basic design and distribution of light and dark tones.

This was a more recent fun and unusual project from 2011 that involved creating a realistic looking cross stitch illustration. John Hopkins Magazine was running an article on at home patient care that needed a visual depiction of the major aspects of home support care provided through its clinics.
I developed the cross stitch illustration by loosely re-creating the reference images above in a weave. Several individual cross stitches had to be developed to show a level of variety that would be convincing. I used several sources as inspiration for creating the right patterns and added a cast shadow in "layer effects" to give the surface a raised appearance.
