Various isometric editorial illustrations

​​​​​​​Below is a selection of some of my favourite editorial illustrations I made recently for a variety of magazines. Besides the illustrations I've also added the illustrator outlines for each one, to give a bit more insight in the 'construction' of the illustrations. Rather than drawing in the traditional sense, I mostly use the 3D functions (Extrude and Revolve) in Adobe Illustrator to 'build' the objects in each scene.

I was commissioned by to create an illustration about how lab-grown meat currently still relies on foetal blood. The foetus gets killed during the process so lab-grown meat is not as ‘clean’ as companies working on it claim.

How the VA is Using AI to Target Cancer​​​​​​​

I was commissioned by The Atlantic to create an illustration about IBM’s Watson is helping doctors deliver cutting-edge cancer care to veterans, by looking at the DNA of the patient. The military objects in this illustration are meant as a metaphor for the pinpoint accuracy of this new method.
