I'm still alive...

Sorry for the silence, but I'm finishing up my semester tomorrow and have a huge project to present and I've been drowing in it for about 3 months. I designed a restaurant named Ciaroscuro based on a Caravaggio painting and I have been drafting, rendering, and modelling my butt off. Here is a snapshow of the model I made.

The walls are lined with a black moire fabric, the red tissue paper is a red capiz chandelier, there are insets with custom made (by me) and painted wallpaper made from black and gold marbelized paper and yes, I made wooden spiral stairs in which I stained my own wood. YEAH.

Wish me luck tomorrow!

That looks 1000 times better than any model I ever made in design school (my least favorite part of any project).

The restaurant brief must be standard fare for professors. I had the same assignment, only our task was a two-story deli. I hand-drew every ding dang brick on the exterior elevation.

Best of luck on your presentation!

Congrats girl, you're almost done! Yep, did the two-story restaurant assignment, too, I think we all have to suffer that challenge. Mine was a cricket-themed sports bar. Exhausting. You'll be so glad when this is done! Brava!

Thanks ya'll!

Raina I'd love to see a DELI that you designed!

Whitney--your cricket bar sounds adorable I'm sure Sharlene luuuved it.
