Here is a new image I recently worked on. Not sure if I can ever consider these finished but I had taken this about as far as I could go. It was originally going to be about the archway design of a police department building. I later began playing around with bridge designs and then later started to scab onto the bridge ‘new housing’ inspired by Leb Woods.

I recently collaborated with Qing Lu of AUL Creative in China on the Holy Sun City mixed use project. The image below was also selected for a Award of Excellence and published in last years AIP29 publication. The design was already established and my studio was tasked with creating an image that conveyed a sense of entry and spirituality.

Its been quite some time since my last post and my new years resolution is to take better advantage of my blog and other various social media outlets… Recently I was invited to be part of a local team to work on the 2024 Boston Olympic bid. I was thrilled that our city was chosen to represent the USA for the upcoming international  competition against some of the most iconic cities in the world. My roll was to bring vision and conceptual design to what a Boston Olympics could look like. Below is one of the first studies I had done…

Lots going on here at the studio. I was recently invited to submit work along with 15 other artists for a new exhibition, The Architecture of an Idea: Illustrations and Concepts. The show will be from May 11th  – September 8th. ‘The selected invited artists range from architects, illustrators, model makers and fine artists working in a variety of media from traditional drawing, painting, and sculpture, to digital work.  The works are conceptions for built and un-built structures, while others are purely artistic expressions’. 

Here is a detail.

It has been reasonably busy these past few months so I have not had much time to blog. Here is an image I worked on that was a rarely requested winter scene. I researched a bunch of real photography and tried to use a grey/pink color pallet.

Finally, here is a detail of the existing structure. Several other illustrations for this project had been commissioned after this first piece. Great project and the clients where very interested in capturing both the design intent and the atmosphere of the space.  Not sure how close I got to achieving the desired atmosphere but the available photography of the existing space proved invaluable in trying to approach the volume and character of the structural mosaic.

 

Here is an inspirational photograph of the space as it sits today…

The Blog has been getting dusty lately… Here is an image of a project in Europe where the client was pulling together a design for a new retail environment in an exiting shell.

Here is a close up… The original rendering was 20″ across and this performance area was about a half inch square.
