The Book of Trees

portada_590pix

I’m honored being part of a wonderful book: The Book of Trees, Visualizing Branches of Knowledge by Manuel Lima. An incredibly beautiful book with two hundred tree diagram illustrations covering from ancient Mesopotamia to contemporary designers.

My little contribution is a tree representing Obama words in his speeches.

A must have whether like data visualization or just love illustrations.

You can buy it at amazon following this link.

Thanks Manuel for counting on me for this great book!

Revit Icon Madness

JO-D-140320-RevitIconMadness-01_590pix

Despite of the title., I love Revit. For an architect is the door to BIM world but something is like riding a tiger… beautiful, powerful but you have to take care of his jaw!.

In my regular work I usually look under it’s skin (talking about the API) and amazes how complex and deep it can be. And I think that showing all the icons inside Revit could be a good way to visualize it.

So I extracted 388 icons of Revit 2014 and spread over “revit” name in order to create this illustration. Click to get a high resolution of it!. By the way Revit is registered trademarks of Autodesk, Inc. Hey AU, it’s just a tribute!

I will come back soon with BIM acronyms.

Hay veces que uno no sabe muy bien como dar el enfoque adecuado a una ilustraci√≥n. Tan solo quieres hacer algo, no dejarlo pasar, no perder la oportunidad de dar las gracias…

Pero como plasmar lo que has recibido, esa sensaci√≥n de la perfecci√≥n, los matices, el sabor de tu tierra… es imposible…

Tengo decenas de cosas a medio terminar que se perder√°n en el olvido. Pero esta vez no. Aunque no tenga tiempo, aunque estoy cansado y haya sue√Īo… tengo que hacer algo… incluso aunque todo salga mal.

Hasta siempre maestro!
