Harbor Freight Product Illustrations
I did a series of product illustrations for Harbor Freight Tools, which they used to have them etched onto glass for their new conference rooms.
The series consisted of 40+ line drawings, done in Adobe Illustrator.
This process was done almost entirely with the Illustrator Pen Tool, with some use of Shapes and Blends. One of the main challenges was consistency, and deciding what to include or leave out from each illustration so that none looked more detailed or simple than the others.
Another challenging aspect was capturing the varied materials, such as fabric for the gloves, cables, and protective foam. It was difficult to create the right balance between consistency of line and form and realistic and understandable interpretation of the items shown.
