Mr. Liquid Crystal


James Ferguson  made an enormous contribution to the digital world by created LCD technology. His daughter Teri wrote a book about his fascinating life. I was thrilled to contribute the cover illustration - which incorporates the colors of natural liquid crystals.


This project came about after Teri came across a portrait I created of her father in 2011, for the tech company, Softmart.  The drawing (below) appeared in a calendar celebrating great technological innovators. In adapting this piece to a book-cover, I found Teri and designer Susan Shankin to be a pleasure to collaborate with. Looking forward to reading about his life!
