Extreme sports began their rise to stardom in the mid 1980’s, since they ratings have continued to climb and with it inherent risk. Extreme athletes and daredevils alike push themselves to the absolute limits in the name of insanity despite the risks. Unlike most sports a mistake in an extreme sport most often results in death. This info-graphic was created to shed light on the injuries and fatalities behind extreme sports. The accompanying “Project Truth” image was created to honor the victims of extreme sports accidents using news headlines related to their deaths.

Have you ever sat down, watched the news and thought to yourself “wow what a boring way to die.”, yeah me neither. But there are some semi-interesting statistics relating to extreme sports and the injuries related to them, with my info-graphic I hope to display these numbers in a pleasing way while throwing some personal touches in. I think many people will be surprised by how safe many extreme sports actually are and how dangerous others tend to be.
This is the finished cover of my process book, complete with vinyl lettering on the plastic cover. Also Play-Doh
Working on some custom vinyl lettering for my process book.
I’m having some fun with the layout of this process book.
I’m going to call this a distraction piece because I can’t see myself finishing it before next semester but I picked this snowboard up at salvation army for $6 and I plan on painting it.
Looking back on my time at the brewery while working on my process book I found this picture of a real live beer label designer’s work station. Impressed?
I finally got around to adding the hanging hardware to my piece and signing it so I guess I’m officially done!
Last night I put in some work on a pigeon in my triptych.
I began painting on my piece this week.
This is how I will layout the painting on my “canvas”.
Since I’m getting close to painting my piece I decided to start scoping out colors. I’m going for a more scientific illustration feel so my colors should be local.
