A non-fiction book about spaceflight. I designed and illustrated the book for my diploma thesis.
As subject, I chose an advanced concept of the russian spaceplane Kliper (Клипер). The book illustrates the complete flight cycle of the spacecraft during a mission to a space station.
A 3D-model of the spaceship Kliper (Клипер). I build the detailed model for an illustration project during my illustration studies. The task of the project was to design a hypothetical article for a magazine. As subject, I chose the the attempt of Russia to build a reusable replacement for their old Soyuz spaceships. After finishing the illustration project, I continued to work on the model and tried to build it as detailed a possible. The result are the following renderings.
A series of illustrations for the german issue of the “New Scientist”. The topic was the search for giant energy absorbing space structures, which can indicate the presence of alien civilizations. The idea of these structures was originally developed by the physicist Freeman Dyson in the 60s. The first row shows two variations of his Dyson Spheres, a swarm of planet-sized solar collectors and a ringworld. The bottom row illustrates other possible structures, a giant monolith and a solar sail.
An interactive infographic I’ve done for illustration school some time ago. The task was to create an information-app for the iPad about organ transplantation. The intention of the app was to explain the transplantation process to potential patients. I had to do the part about skin transplantation.
My concept is simple. It’s only one wide scrollable image. I chose this format to illustrate the skins dimension. The image is separated into several sections, each showing the skin during the transplantation process. Each section has an information layer, that explains the current process.
The overview above shows the navigation between the layers. Swiping sideways goes back and forth in the process and tapping shows or hides the information layer.
An illustration I’ve made for the “DIE ZEIT”-newspaper. It was for an article about the dispersion of the Celtic culture.
The map shows the most important Celtic communities in Europe. The man illustrates the clothing of a warrior and the houses illustrate a Celtic village. Usually the villages were surrounded by a rampart.
