Coming In For A Landing

Had a very productive last few days and am very pleased with the finished product.  This is a pretty high resolution image that you can click on to see large.  Please note all the little tiny tail lights on the cars and busses.  Hope the airports authority will commission me to create a 75th Anniversary piece.

Preparing For Arrival

Printed the large black stencil along with some small stencils and the end is in sight, but not without a good number of additional colors.  The yellow and red stencils will be lots of fun and add immeasurably to the overalls effect.
I'll be cutting stencils tonight and tomorrow.
Stay tuned.

An Ontime Flight

As you can see, I am making very good progress.
Lots of small stencils today to cut and print.
I will start populating the airport and really bring it to life in the next few days.
Stay tuned.

Flying Right Along

I'm making good progress in spite of several electrical outages.  The large green area represents not only foliage but the under printing for the pavement. (Don't we always pave over the green?)  Got an early start on the stencil cutting today while it was relatively cool,
(less hot), and will try to make a productive stab at getting a lot of printing accomplished.
Stay tuned.

A Hot Day to Print

Got a lot accomplished in spite of the heat.
With the air conditioner going full blast and the ventilation system removing the cool air with the fumes my print room is about 80 degrees.
Cut stencils early this morning and have been printing all day.  Rather than print light to dark, as I normally do, I'm printing background to foreground.  By tomorrow, it will begin to look much more exciting.
Stay tuned.

A New Commission Underway

I'm pleased to announce that I have been commissioned by the Metro Washington Airports Authority to create commemorative artwork for Dulles Airports 50th Anniversary.
This project began with photos that I took from the top of a forty foot lift parked on top of the fourth floor of the West parking deck at the airport.  After approval of my preliminary sketch, I am now printing, (silkscreening), the many colored stencils that will be necessary to bring this piece to life.  At left are the first three colors.  Stay tuned for more.
