Thanks so much Fred. I don't know what you're talking about though... your work is awesome! Those iso maps are so cool. I'm going to go visit your gallery in a minute for a more in depth look. Your work looks pretty nice to me.
Thanks for the kind words but, drawing iso is pretty much my one and only confort zone. Yours, however, seems to be about everything as long as you have a pencil in your hands. B/W, color, maps, objects, architecture and so on. So unfair
I knew there was a reason I got on so well with you. I have always loved landscape architecture and the plan drawings and all. I did landscaping and a bit of simpler landscape design years ago for a company I worked for. It was pretty cool to layout all the plantings and then go do the planting itself.
Well, except when it was completely new work... tilling, digging, that's why I have so much joint pain now. Too much repetitive hand/arm/wrist work over the years.
But I always loved planning a thing and then making it a reality. Same thing with drawing up furniture and then building it. Almost like being a conjurer.
After 25 years my enthusiasm is a little jaded and in fairness much of the work these days is visual impact assessment rather than design but its nice to do some drawing when the opportunity arises. We never actually did any of the manual work though just the office end. Landscapes, furniture it makes no difference really, the process of design and delivery is essentially the same, its all about problem solving. I like puzzles which I think is essentially the same process.
