Dreadnoughtus schrani - Skeletal Reconstruction
Through an informal internship with Dr. Matthew Lamanna at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, I was guided in digitally drawing a skeletal reconstruction of a new Titanosaur species. Collaborating scientists provided me with images, measurements and descriptions of the fossils as well as informative lessons on previous Titanosaur publications.
Sarris Jungle Mural
I was requested to create a realistic jungle scene for the archway to the children’s section of my hometown’s public library. The Installation consists of 63 detailed illustrations of tropical animals rendered in color pencil. The animals were sized to scale within a hand-drawn jungle background, which was assembled as a complete image in Adobe Photoshop. The printing and installation of the piece was donated by Printscape Imaging and Graphics. This permanent installation was donated in memory of local entrepreneur and community benefactor, Frank Sarris of Sarris Candies.
