PROJECT SPOTLIGHT: preliminary rug designs
These drawings/paintings of mine posted here are part of a series of 16 images I created recently… tentative potential rug designs for a current speculative venture, and also being a motivation for branching out into other areas in the design world. The task has been quite a breath of fresh air because making these early stage preliminary drawings/paintings is so unbound compared to my assignments creating picture book illustrations and illustrations for magazines and advertising… (They were created digitally, combined with painted gouache textures)
PROJECT SPOTLIGHT: giant window display graphics for on-site promo of One Hill South
The Related Companies/ One Hill South
Back when the Time Warner Center first opened a number of years ago, located at Columbus Circle in NYC, I was commissioned by the developer, The Related Companies, to create a series of illustration magazine print ads promoting all the new retail shops at the TWC. It was a terrific assignment. Now, all these years later, I was again commissioned by The Related Companies, this time to create illustrated window display graphics promoting their new residential apartment building complex in the Capitol Riverfront section of Washington DC... named ONE HILL SOUTH (on K Street). I created three 4-panel scenes which when printed were 9 feet tall x 76 feet long in total. I created the art images in Adobe Illustrator, as vector-based images were required to enlarge them up to the full window size during the printing reproduction process. Posted here are some detail views of the actual window installations on-site, as well as views of some of the illustrations I supplied to them. It's cool seeing my images reproduced so large!
