Roots.

For all my illustrations, I like to document the whole process, from initial sketches, notes, experiments and doodlings to the final piece. This was initially born out of a fascination as to how many of my favorite artists created their work and for a process that can be very time consuming, it’s a relief to see where you have come from.

Below are a few shots of a work in progress, my own take on the Keystone Design Union’s logo. Most of my work is half planned half evolving at the time and this piece still has a fair way to go.

A brief rationale: Scottish Thistle, Irish Clover, and British and American Roses reflecting the entwined historical roots of the Masonry organisation – and it’s part in the inspiration/creation of the KDU.

A Hoberman sphere as an icosidodecahedron

In geometry, an icosidodecahedron is a polyhedron with twenty triangular faces and twelve pentagonal faces. An icosidodecahedron has 30 identical vertices, with two triangles and two pentagons meeting at each, and 60 identical edges, each separating a triangle from a pentagon. As such it is one of the Archimedean solids and more particularly, a quasiregular polyhedron.

An icosidodecahedron has icosahedral symmetry, and its first stellation is the compound of a dodecahedron and its dual icosahedron, with the vertices of the icosahedron located at the midpoints of the edges of either. Convenient Cartesian coordinates for the vertices of an icosidodecahedron with unit edges are given by the cyclic permutations of (0,0,±τ), (±1/2, ±τ/2, ±(1+τ)/2), where τ is the golden ratio, (1+√5)/2. Its dual polyhedron is the rhombic triacontahedron. An icosidodecahedron can be split along several planes to form pentagonal rotundae, which belong among the Johnson solids.

In the standard nomenclature used for the Johnson solids, an icosidodecahedron would be called a pentagonal gyrobirotunda.

[edit] Area and volume

The area A and the volume V of the icosidodecahedron of edge length a are:

A = (5sqrt{3}+3sqrt{25+10sqrt{5}}) a^2  approx 29.3059828a^2
V = frac{1}{6} (45+17sqrt{5}) a^3 approx  13.8355259a^3.

[edit] Related polyhedra

The icosidodecahedron is a rectified dodecahedron and also a rectified icosahedron, existing as the full-edge truncation between these regular solids.

The Icosidodecahedron contains 12 pentagons of the dodecahedron and 20 triangles of the icosahedron:

It is also related to the Johnson solid called a pentagonal orthobirotunda created by two pentagonal rotunda connected as mirror images.

Eight uniform star polyhedra share the same vertex arrangement. Of these, two also share the same edge arrangement: the small icosihemidodecahedron (having the triangular faces in common), and the small dodecahemidodecahedron (having the pentagonal faces in common). The vertex arrangement is also shared with the compounds of five octahedra and of five tetrahemihexahedra.

This piece is a few years old. At the time it was going to be a pitch to Sony for the V series of screens that was in production, as I was really impressed with the huge leap forward in pixel perfect images, and the tech displays at trade shows. It made digital art interesting again, with wide screen taking the helm.The idea was to show various raw energy visuals connecting elements to and from the screen. It seems a basic design now, but a good recap and creative insight to include here.

The main Dragon image was a scanned illustration with all elements added layer by layer.

The strap line created for the graphic was ‘SONY : Our vision is your future – Your vision is our future’

Press checking one of the concepts that was chosen for a test at Kohl’s. Turned out pretty hot. loving the detail and pop of the colors, while still having a super soft hand.

ALL FOR ONE EVENT

AT NIKETOWN NEW YORK ON OCTOBER 22, 2010

Fiodor Sumkin for Troy Polamalu:

“Instinct makes Troy’s game great. He reacts to what he feels on the field. He puts the pieces together so that the game makes sense, and when this happens, everything falls naturally into place. The Troy poster is also based on instinct. It’s not about doing the math beforehand or endlessly contemplating the laws behind acting on something. It’s about including every element you know that feels right so that the end result is a victory.”
