Illustrations[edit]

Here is a gallery of images I created and uploaded through Wikimedia Commons using my Commons login (KDS444), in no particular order. Some have been considered good enough to become featured pictures and a few of those have been Picture of the Day for all of the English Wikipedia. I have only modest formal training as a graphic artist, but I enjoy the creative process immensely. About a year ago I began creating vector-based images using Illustrator instead of my usual Photoshop JPGs, and have never looked back (the gif images, though, those are all still photoshop creations until Commons can accept animated SVG files, and I am sure it's just a matter of time). Want to use one?? See my "Illustrations notice" at the bottom of this page— thanks!

Oh, and I like writing articles, too! So many dimensions, so little time... A list of those I have at least started (if not necessarily finished) appears under the gallery in my article nursery, in their raw pre-article status (mostly for my own reference— if you want to see the actual current article, don't look here). Below that are some handy reminders for me and some tools I like to use (the Google Books citation creator app, for example, is a godsend, and now no one has any excuse for creating another unreferenced article on the English Wikipedia, ever).

I like seeing citations. They make me happy. That and, well, apparently the inner parts of worms and molluscs. They make me happy too (ew!), though I also draw radiation capsules and sintering kilns and theater curtains and dinosaurs and bathymetric maps of the ocean floor. And dormer windows and tall ships and medical illustrations of reproductive organs and fingernails and the human brain. And spiders. It's a lot of non-sequitors, really. Anyhow, here's the gallery:
