Anchorage to Phila

What’s the wish list?  I never know, as I meet a couple (these days always on Zoom…), what their requests will be in terms of design.  For this one, the specs were few and varied, and as always, my job was to make it an aesthetic whole.  THAT’S where the fun begins!

Two trees, a koa and an olive, interlocking roots that form the mountain range above Anchorage, the Philadelphia skyline – with William Penn restored to his monumental glory, and a color palette limited to yellow, orange, and royal blue.  The solution was to hold the design together as a papercut and slip the color behind using pastel chalk sifted through a small sieve and then finger-blended.
