Dimensional illustration




               
                     


Dimensional illustration uses sculptural techniques to create an image that is subsequently photographed for the final artwork. Movies such as Tim Burton's Nightmare before Christmas was realized using animated dimensional illustrations. It is a work intensive technique but the results can be extremely compelling.

Most of my work is done using a mixed media approach including wood, self hardening clay, paper, acrylic and other materials to create the original image. Lighting is also a very important component in the creation of the final photograph.
