So, I just got back from Miami, the host city for this year’s American Society of Architectural Illustrator’s conference and exhibition for the 24th annual Architecture in Perspective.  Sound exciting?!  Well, actually it was.

…and many, many, many others.  I abbreviated the work because I’m lazy.

This was my entry, of the Omaha College World Series, which won an Award of Excellence.

We  participated in lectures and workshops.

I tried four attempts at watercolor here.  But the change from a rainy and overcast morning to a bright and sunny afternoon frustrated me beyond my capacity.  I switched to pencil in an attempt to redeem myself.  Eh, not quite, but a good ‘period’ to this post.  Until next time…
