A Degraded Mask of Meridian Hill Park
|| 10/2/2006 || 11:08 pm || Comments Off on A Degraded Mask of Meridian Hill Park || ||

I took a draft of an African mask design for a client and degraded it to make it look slightly older. It’s Cardozo High School to Meridian Hill Park in Northwest Washington, DC and somewhere in that map is the client’s house.

The map was completed on December 2nd, 2006. View the drafts:

Donations to the Library of Congress Geography & Mapping Division
|| 8/25/2006 || 3:40 pm || Comments Off on Donations to the Library of Congress Geography & Mapping Division || ||

Today I donated the 8 maps I was commissioned to produce to the Library of Congress’ Geography & Mapping Division. I must say for the first time in my life I feel that my work, my existence, now has longevity to it. As in when I die, my work will live on. While the cartographic collection of over 5 million maps now has only 8 more maps, there is something truly special about knowing that the work I did in my short life will be remembered forever. After I left the Library of Congress I took a long walk to the Archives metro to take in the beauty of it all.

Park City Quilt
|| 7/9/2006 || 1:59 pm || Comments Off on Park City Quilt || ||

The print arrived in the mail today and I showed it the client this afternoon. She is very pleased with the final outcome (as am I!). She is mailing it to her sister tomorrow….

This is probably my favorite commissioned map :)

Lady Liberty on a quilt of the Pearl River Delta
|| 7/2/2005 || 11:06 pm || Comments Off on Lady Liberty on a quilt of the Pearl River Delta || ||

This is my first “commissioned” piece. I mentioned it a while back, but it took my benefactor a little while to come through with what he wanted me to make. He is from Hong Kong, which is where the Pearl River Delta is, and I used a NASA satellite image of the Pearl River Delta a backdrop. On the body of the model I used the same modified aerial photography I’ve used in most of my DC based renderings (like DC Lenz #4). The contrast between the past and the present is what I like most about this rendering, and I sincerely hope that he likes print on his wall at his home or office!

Baltimore Lenz #2
|| 6/8/2005 || 10:04 am || Comments Off on Baltimore Lenz #2 || ||

This rendering was made for a client so it doesn’t have my normal tag on it. It uses the Baltimore Inner Harbor as the focal point which I think the client will appreciate. The next rendering will definitely be either “Baltimore Quilt” or “Baltimore Lenz #3,” the latter will get the same reflection treatment that DC Lenz #4 got. I can’t wait to see how the inner harbor looks reflected! Look at the first Baltimore Lenz….can you imagine what it will look like with 2X more reflection? I am visualizing it right now :)



My first corporate commission
|| 5/16/2005 || 11:42 am || Comments Off on My first corporate commission || ||

I sold my first rendering to a local corporate entity…. I’ve already used the proceeds to get some of my older posters printed out. This is also the first time I’ve given the digital rights away as well, so now they own the full size (10,000 X 7,500) file instead of just a print. At first I was very hesitant about giving the digital rights away, but since this rendering is based off the “Lenz Project,” which essentially was the project that defined my style, I don’t mind as much because its clearly has my touch to it- even if its manipulated extensively. Also, the image doesn’t have the same abstractions I perfer to add, so while being my style, its also completely different compared to what I am making now……. its about time I made another rendering….
