Island Ferry

I've been trying to think of good local scenery -- and what's more Seattle than a ferry? I found this great reference photo of a ferry with Mt. Baker in the background. The photo is free to use so long as I credit it to the Orcas Island Chamber of Commerce -- so there you go.

This piece was pretty straightfoward! So many tiny windows, though. :) I love doing mountains, they're really fun; the contrast with the snow practically draws itself.

Pike's Place

Since I did the Space Needle last year, I thought I should do the second most iconic landmark in Seattle as well: the Pike's Place sign! The design took a super long time because I had to get the letters and angles just right, but in the end I'm very pleased with it.

This piece caused some difficulty because I wanted the sign to stand out, which normally would be the area of most contrast, but of course the sign has to glow too. I went through several iterations before I decided to try what worked: cutting out a second layer of orange-red paper to make the glow sharper against the painted background. I couldn't find exactly the right color paper, though, so I ended up "printing" my own paper for the task. In the end it worked perfectly! I'll have to try this technique again in the future.
