James Fergason invented LCD technology. His contributions to science have led to everything from calculators and my first Casio watch, to Gameboys and ipods. His daughter Teri wrote a book about his amazing life. I was thrilled to contribute a portrait for the cover, and am looking forward to learning about his journey. Wonderful Book design by Susan Shankin.
James Ferguson made an enormous contribution to the digital world by inventing LCD technology. His daughter Terri wrote a book about his 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.
