illustration of How nano particles enter the natural environment through accidental releases into the air and water systems.
illustration of An exploded view to reveal the structural layers of a walking shoe produced by LaCrosse Footware/Danner Boot.
illustration of Exploded-view of the RME (the Relay Mirror Experiment), for the Department of Defense.

The protection comes from matrix of satellite mirrors that use laser beams to detect and communicate information about the approach of enemy ICBM missiles. 

This is the back side, called the reaction-mass side. Also the front-side mirror art.
illustration of Explored-view of the RME (the Relay Mirror Experiment), for the Department of Defense that uses a matrix of satellite mirrors that use laser beams to detect and communicate information about the approach of enemy ICBM missiles. 

This is the front side, the functional mirror side. Also see the back side, the reaction-mass side illustration.
illustration of This is the main graphic that represents a university research group studying the parts of the brain involved with smell and how it can effect memory in the area of Alzehiemer's research.
illustration of SICO Eurobed Murphy Bed support system that regulates how a king or queen-size bed can the raised or lowered with easy 2-finger operation through a system of heavy springs in the beds base.
illustration of Nanoscale surface sensors that help a robotic hand be more sensitive and effective. Nanoscience, nanotechnology.
illustration of This deep-space telescope features a new mirror concept that allows for the mirror to be calibrated in weeks instead of months. NASA telescope. Sectional dimetric view.
illustration of Robotic programmable floor scrubber uses a laser beam reading large wall-mounted barcodes to triad its way through pre-programmed warehouses. Front mounted unframed and ultrasonic sensor prevents accidents on the job. Created for Windsor Technology. Original art is airbrushed watercolor and ink pen on paper.
illustration of SICO RoomMaker Murphy Bed support system that regulates how a king or queen-size bed can the raised or lowered with easy 2-finger operation through a system of heavy springs in the beds base.
illustration of Personalized Medicine: Chemotherapy micro-sensor. The micro-sensor implant is loaded with all 26 known chemotherapy drugs. The sensor measures cellular die-off to determine which drugs the patient's individual body best responds to. The results are then used to make the perfect chemo-cocktail to effectively treat the patient.
illustration of Exploded view reveals the constructions layers that make up the perfect boot. Done for Danner Boot / LaCrosse Footwear.
illustration of Cave exploring drones work in networks and need to navigate and communicate with other drones and rovers. Underground communication can only occur using particular frequencies.
illustration of This nanoscale diagram shows the Interface dynamics when using treated water in fractal drilling to maximize oil yield from shale.
illustration of This nanotech concept reclaims common exhaust waste heat and reclaims it by converting the heat back into a useable energy.
illustration of Underground caves are explored with a network of flying droves and various-sized land rovers. Underground communication and information-sharing can only be done on certain frequencies and enhanced through use of relays and other properties of rock and vibrations. Done for the Univ. of Colorado.
illustration of This exploded view, construction view, displays the various layers that go into the creation of a fabulous hiking boot. Done for Danner Boot / LaCrosse Footwear.
illustration of Exploded/construction view displays the various layers and features that go into designing a waterproof hiking boot. Created for Danner Boot / LaCrosse Footwear.
illustration of Two sets of custom icons related to 2 commercial building programs: the 5 Strategies and the also the 5 Phases of Construction. 

These were created for the University of Colorado's School of Advanced Engineering and Applied Science.
illustration of Drilling Rams for the Master Driller Guide for the International Association of Drilling Contractors.
illustration of Mud Pump Sectional View for the Master Driller Guide for the International Association of Drilling Contractors.
illustration of Sectional View of a Pinion Head and Cross Shaft for the Master Driller Guide for the International Association of Drilling Contractors.
illustration of Mud Pump Sectional for the Master Driller Guide for the International Association of Drilling Contractors.
illustration of This diagram show you mimics and inhibitors can block the development of disease, like Parkinson's and cancer.
illustration of This is 4 of the book covers from a series of softcover books on various technology subjects.
illustration of This is the final image of a series of 4 on the growth and development of the potato plant used in a video by the Department of Agriculture.
illustration of This commercial floor cleaner utilizes a rubber dam in the middle of the water-reservoir to allow for both maximum clean water AND, after spraying, scrubbing and squeegeeing-up the dirty water, it gets maximum dirty water capacity as the rubber dam slowly migrates from one end to the other as the water disposition changes.
illustration of This ghosted view was created for Xerox Corporate through an agency, Leopard Limited. 

This was cutting-edge technology at the time. The illustration shows the
illustration of Here we have the logo typography alone as well as with the amazing stock image that we bought to go with it. The aluminum can was printed by Ball as a 6-color run. The red and black inks were printed as a double-bump to ensure the color richness.
illustration of This was the 1st of 3 concepts that I rendered for a NASA proposal for the 9-foot bearings that would rotate the Solar Panels on the International Space Station.

The sectional drawing was done from orthographic blueprints.
illustration of This was the 2nd of 3 concepts that I rendered for a NASA proposal for the 9-foot bearings that would rotate the Solar Panels on the International Space Station.

The sectional drawing was done from orthographic blueprints.
illustration of Created for Colorado MicroDisplay, the illustration shows the inner works of a wearable display headset. The wearer could align the eye piece up to the dominant eye and could access information like blueprints, wiring schematics, emergency medical, and other types of information with hands-free ease.
illustration of This work was done for FlyingBeds.com out of Denver, CO. I also created their entire website.

This is an example of my Photoshop abilities doing color correction work. Here, a very poorly light expensive Murphy bed made of oak is severely wrong. 

I corrected the colors through a combination of desaturation and manipulating the color channels.

Profile

Since opening the doors in 1997, Lightspeed Commercial Arts has specialized in high-end technical and product illustration, science illustration, as well as logo design/visual branding. Early in his career, Mike Hamers, designer/illustrator (and founder of Lightspeed) has worked as an illustrator in the corporate art departments of Simplicity Lawn & Garden, Harley-Davidson Motorcycles (WI), Jeep/Renault (WI), and Ball Aerospace (CO). Since founding Lightspeed in 1997, Mike has worked closely with many companies, in many industries, both large and small, including: IBM, N.A.S.A., Dept. of Defense, Xerox, Microgravity Enterprises, N.C.A.R., Medtronic, Durect Medical, International Assn of Drilling Contractors, Mobil Oil, Alaska Clean Seas, Metron-Farnier Water Meters/Verizon), and with the Advanced Science & Technology departments of the Universities of Colorado, Texas, Utah, and Wisconsin to name a few. We take great pride in having won over 35 national and international “Awards of Excellence” of our LOGO designs. Additionally, we have also won the “Best Of Category” in other areas – including “BEST USE OF”: Typography (Sweet Greens font DESIGN), Logo Usage Guide (for the Town of Mead), Photography (Addiction Recovery Story), Corporate Environmental Graphics (Dessault 3D Systems), and for Illustration (unpublished illustration called “Momentum”).
