You’re sitting in a design review meeting. In a conference room. The dull buzz of the fluorescent lights match the mono-tone static of some voice in the room, but who cares, you’ve got a pen. Before you know it, you’ve inked an entire mural across the wall, the whiteboard and your boss’ face. He would be upset, but he’s quite amused that you were able to hold him him down long enough to draw a small robot holding a laser gun in the crevice of his cheek. Inspiration can hit us at any time.
It hits all the time for one engineer who turns color into some of the coolest environments you’ll ever see. Introducing Shaun Mullen. He’s an engineer, but he’s also an artist and quite an amazing one at that. From Cumbria UK, Shaun brings forth the beauty in illustrations he creates with finger and stylus using Sketchbook Pro for the iPad. Yes, all of the artwork you’re about to see was done on an iPad. I had the opportunity to talk with Shaun and learned more about his background in engineering and what inspires him.
