Intricate Geometric Animal Illustrations by Kerby Rosanes

Kerby Rosanes aka Sketchy Stories is an illustrator from Manila, Philippines. The young sketch artist specializing in amazingly detailed and elaborate doodles has been recognized by international and notable art communities after reverting to a part time professional career in design and has been featured in design blogs and magazines.

“Doodling” is looked down as a lesser refined art technique but Rosanes has brought the humble art to the forefront with his intricately detailed, creative and complex drawings. Taking a plain black fine marker to a sheet of paper, he explores a versatile range of themes such as  surrealism, abstract art, cartoons, and complex floral patterns. From precisely mimicked animal portraits with a face partially made from mechanical gears similar to clockwork, and many portraits and subjects trapped together in the middle of inseparable yet opposing elements, the artist depicts the struggle of contemporary with classic.

Kerby Rosanes has amassed a huge following on his Instagram profile where he showcases most of his work. The artist has come a long way from sketching doodles as a hobby to becoming a  professional artist whose works are recognized and appreciated by fans and critics alike. You can buy his work in his Society6 shop.

Important features of LEED projects

The LEED rating system is designed and to provide the best sustainability assessment according to the American and equivalent international standards addressed by LEED Reference books.
LEED projects ensure efficient use of water fixtures, conserve water condensation and utilize rainwater collected for landscape irrigation, use the water collected with gray water systems for flushing etc. LEED system importantly addresses to the facade design by considering energy efficient envelope measures, together with the selection of high performing electro-mechanical systems and compliance with the ASHRAE or USGBC approved international equivalent standards. To prevent Heat Island Effect, the roof areas are usually covered with high albedo roof materials as well as the parking area, where the project needs to use of light-colored sun reflecting materials to minimize heat island effect. Another important sustainability feature in LEED system, it encourages buildings promoting pedestrian access, a bicycle parking together with a dedicated bicycle lane connecting with mass transit system. To reduce the carbon footprint of overall building project electric vehicle charging stations are involved in many LEED projects.
Site selection is addressed essentially by LEED projects that selection of a sustainable development location within walking distance to public transport stops contributes achieving green building goals. Minimizing use of high VOC content materials improves the health and comfort of occupant indoors. The content of volatile organic compounds in chemical products such as adhesives, silicones, carpet tiles is preferred under the international limit. The design criteria according to ASHRAE 62.1 standards to ensure adequate fresh air indoors required to be provided into the spaces. The fresh air supply rate into the building, above the ASHRAE 62.1 standard, provides the building a healthy and comfortable environment for occupants. Implementing Daylighting, shading strategies makes a significant difference through the whole project design.
Many green building projects use energy modeling simulations tools to estimate the virtual or computerized performance of the building before the construction starts. Because of how much energy would be based on computer simulations of building energy-modeling service monthly spending, it emerges in the design phase of the structure. In this way, optimal solutions by analyzing energy opportunities in new or existing buildings can be selected. Local climate conditions, the sunny days of the year, humidity levels of specific environment where the building is located, electro-mechanical systems of the building, the building’s function, building envelope performance, can be simulated with computer tools by considering previously selected parameters such as the number of occupants is possible to see the results before changes to be made on the building.
