March as been a very busy month working on projects for Advanced Technology Group, Ed Carpenter Studio, happylucky, GBD Architects, Reveal Architecture, Surround Architecture and Ted Grund Design. Project types were refreshingly varied; clean room, sculpture, retail fixtures, sports car, secondary school building, apartment building and commercial office space. Hoping that next month will continue the trend.
I’m proud to be a minor sponsor of the Welcome to Sportland event. The gang at 3DPDX and AEPDX have done a great job putting this event together. I submitted a variety of retail, automotive and architectural design illustrations with special thanks to happylucky, Surround Architecture, BOORA, Opsis Architecture, Nike and Grund Design.
Beginning work on a illustration project of a new building for the York School in California for Surround Architecture and HGHB Architects.
Another great article about YU.

“For the last several years the Yale Union Laundry building at 800 SE 10th Avenue, a striking brick Italian Renaissance space built in 1908 and listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, has sat empty. But now, it is poised to become the major contemporary art center Portland has more or less lacked since the closing of the Portland Center for the Visual Arts closed in 1987.”

“From the moment potential donors and other arts followers curious about new contemporary art center YU walked into Tuesday’s soft launch party, they were treated to a series of choreographed movements: Expertly crafted invitations and press material. Free flowing wine and gorgeously made food. Well-attired and well-mannered docents offering witty, informative tours. And, finally, a presentation by the founding members that included a short pep talk by Portland Mayor Sam Adams.”
