3D Science Illustrations • 2018

I started learning 3D in 2018. My first 3D GIF, for the article:

To Test Einstein’s Equations, Poke a Black Hole

My skill level and technique have since improved, but basic science remains a top interest and inspiration.

I started learning 3D in 2018 while working as Quanta Magazine’s art director. I conceptualized and created these editorial illustrations & GIFs to accompany science and math journalism.

My technique and skill level have changed and improved since these early experiments (sorted oldest to newest). But I’m leaving these up for the subject matter — I’d like to continue creating science-based art for a long time to come!
