Illustrating Explorers

I'm enjoying the illustrations of Bristol-based illustrator Joe Todd Staunton. This cross-section of the oceanic water column with all its flora and fauna (and fishers) and their measurements and appropriate depths, first captured my attention:

via his blog where he wrote that he was considering adding sea birds above! It reminds me of working at sea with ROVs and watching the video feed as they descend or ascend from the depths.

Several other illustrations touch on scientists, academics and explorers, or draw on scientific illustration with their diagrammatic qualities, which is right up my alley.

for an editorial "Cambridge professors to set tough new maths A-levels".

"Newest image from a project that is looking at explorers who died on there journeys. This one is about the astronaut Vladimir Komarov who died coming back to earth due to parachute failure."

for an editorial "Why bright lads are being picked on".

Check out his portfolio and blog for more!
