The unrecognized pioneer
Second collaboration with Swiss magazine Naratek, The unrecognized pioneer is an article written by Sarah Hadorn. I was commissioned to illustrate Thedore Maiman, scientific, pioneer and inventor of the laser in 1960. This period has been one of the great moments in branding, fashion, design, entertainment and the space age of course. I wanted to create a piece bathed with these cues adding a slight science-fiction twist to it. There is a James Bond / Madmen feel to it. I also wanted a more minimalistic approach to the illustration using a only 2 colors (orange and black) mostly, and combining the organic feel of the characters with a more technical style for the devices.
