Katrina Quilt

I have noticed that quite a few DC area artists have put up their art for sale to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Using a public domain satellite image from NASA’s MODIS satellite, I created a piece I call “Katrina Quilt.” I am going to make five 30″ by 20″ prints available for sale at $200 each. If you are interested, please send me an e-mail. I will be making another rendering of the satellite image shortly

##UPDATE##
I have another rendering for sale for hurricane relief efforts, its called Abstract Katrina.

Back in February I went on a weekend retreat in New Market, Virginia, and obtained this book above. A few weeks ago I took it down from the shelf and decided to read over it again. A couple days ago I picked it up again thinking to myself, “I bet some folks in the Gulf States would like a copy.” Then the publication date hit me. August 15th, 1969. I imagine that it was originally created for air force pilots going to Vietnam, yet the date is what I couldn’t get over. Two days after it’s original publication was when the last major hurricane hit the Gulf States, Hurricane Camille, which ravaged the area 36 years and two weeks ago.

Right now I am making a rendering using NASA’s MODIS Rapidfire satellite imagery. I think it will turn out nicely. I should put it up for sale to raise some money…

This is the last of the series. I’d like to place them all by each other, either digitally (most likely) or once printed out ($100+ required) to compare and contrast the role of the location of the orthographically correct imagery plays in each rendering. I’d like to continue making this comparison style of rendering but it’s 4 times as much work. I have to make 4 modified images in photoshop, then render 4 different versions of it, and well, this takes more time than I want to spend on a rendering!

However, I would like to use the quadrant system in a different context, and maybe obtain imagery of F St. NW, NE, SW, SE and have four completely different parts of the city represented in 4 different renderings title F St. NW, F St. NE, F St. SW, and F St. SE. That would be interesting, but I doubt that will be made anytime soon. I want to make some more Adams Morgan renderings, and use the Columbia Heights / Mount Pleasant imagery I have. My goal is to eventually have just about every neighborhood of Washington, DC rendered, so far so good :)

3/4’s done with the series. I am really itching to make a rendering using imagery from New Orleans. I found some very nice imagery from NASA and Digital Globe. I’ll porbably use the NASA imagery simply because it’s public domain imagery. Only one more left!

I really like the way the detail on my house looks. It reminds me of compass! If you don’t see it, think about the logo for the Masons…..you see it?

Up next, U St SE. I can’t wait until I see them all together, side-by-side.
