Weather and Climate Textbook Illustrations

I had the opportunity to contribute to the new technical art program for Sheila Loudon Ross' Second Edition of the Weather and Climate Textbook, published by Oxford University Press. Released earlier this year, this introductory text features coverage of current climate change issues and new discussions of important topics to give students greater insight and understanding into processes that affect weather and climate worldwide.

Diagrams were illustrated using a combination of Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
