Reporter Fred Swegles brought me in to work on visualizing the San Clemente beach erosion and replenishment proposals.

The first step of reporting involved sifting through the hundreds of pages of the environmental impact report. I also found a letter written by an Army major general containing details on the project that city planners had not seen before.

Then I set to work collaborating with artist Scott Brown on deciding what details should be shown and how they should be illustrated in order to explain the beach problems.
