This commission was for a graphic of and eye with a hurricane in the iris, to be part of a conference poster about ocean risk study and perception. I used the client's eye for reference, which added a fun personal touch to the graphic.
This is the resulting image made for the client. I turned the eye painting into a grayscale image and drew a hurricane over a blue iris. At first, I tried the hurricane over the pretty green and brown iris, but it screamed "land hurricane" and the conference topic is "ocean risk," so I went with a blue iris instead. :)
