As a Technical Illustrator, it is my responsibility to solve challenging visual problems with a simple solution. Details in drawings have to be accurate and show complexity in a simple design. I create images for newspapers, magazines and manufacturers in various industries such as automotive, aerospace and technological industries. Drawing types include phantom views, cutaways, exploded views and how-to manual illustrations.
