Fun Facts

Worked directly with the Chief Engineer to output the fixture rendering from SolidWorks in the appropriate file format; being careful to show all x, y and z planes.
Rendered the arrows and shading in Illustrator Smart Objects, then repeated, aligned and adjusted transparency to taste.
The color adjustments from blue to red are meant to communicate that cool air is entering from beneath the fixture, peeling heat away from the heat sink (unit with vertical lines in center), and venting through the top.[/list]

For those who might not know, this graphic style is an homage to Andy Warhol’s famed Marilyn Monroe print. Though I’m not a fan of the man, one must still acknowledge the importance of his trend-setting, artistic style.

Fun Fact

I usually like to guide the viewer’s eyes throughout an art piece, giving them a place to eventually rest.
 
In this instance, I went for the opposite approach; attempting, instead to keep the viewer’s eyes circling to discover more with each pass. Comment and let me know if I achieved that?[/list]
