Project Classic Corvair

30 Mar 2011 3:39pm

PROJECT CLASSIC CORVAIR
Ah, this classic automobile was built by Chevrolet only for nine years (1960 – 1969). It was thoroughly American-made… and like the classic Volkswagen Beetle, it had an engine in the back… leaving the front compartment for luggage and groceries! (Of course this automobile had up to 180hp! Something we’d never see in a kosher Beetle!)

The end of the Corvair was in part of a few reasons… mainly some bad press, tougher emission and safety laws and the ever growing popularity of the Ford Mustang… and Chevrolet’s own Camaro.

However, the 1966 (second generation), Corvair will live on in this upcoming Project Corvair construction card! 🙂 Viva 1960’s!

Birds on a Wire

31 Jan 2011 4:10pm

This past weekend, I felt so inspired… that somehow, I was able to work on seven new paintings! Several were finally realized from sketches I did many years ago, and it feels so complete to have them in oil on canvas.

Final Week of an Architect

24 Jan 2011 6:51am

This is my last week as an architect.

As a child, I knew I wanted to be an architect. Instead of Barbies, I played with blocks. Instead of playing tea party, I designed the houses the tea party attendees would live in. My mom loves to say (even to this day!) that I was the only child she knew who could name a city just by it’s skyline.

In highschool, I took the drafting classes. I learned how to draw imaginary blocks in 3D on the computer. I drew floorplans to houses I pulled out of my head on a whim. I applied to colleges for architecture.

In college, I enjoyed it. Finally, learning architecture on the big… real world scale in New York City! I dreamed of going to work in the pencil skirts, my hair pulled up in a french twist, coffee in one hand… rolled up drawings in the other. I dreamed of taking all that I had learned… architecture history, theory, city skylines… all of it, and create the perfect architecture.

By about my third year of college, I discovered… architecture wasn’t what I thought it was afterall. Unless you have the perfect architecture (doesn’t exist), or the perfect client (doesn’t exist) or the perfect unlimited budget (definitely doesn’t exist)… you would be constricted and restricted. I realized that hand and pencil drawings were in a slow death. I felt the first trappings of creativity.

In my fourth year of college… I was in Rome, Italy… I decided to ignore that gut feeling. I was studying architecture… in ROME! I discovered the root of all architecture. I was living in it’s birthplace, and every crack and crevasse whispered to me… if you fall in love with me, you will love architecture again…

After college, there was the real world. Pencil skirt, yes. Coffee in one hand… YES… sometimes in both. Rolled up drawings? No. It’s all in the computer. It could be glamorous at times. I worked on large projects, had very well known clients, worked with esteemed colleagues… the best of the best!

… but that nagging feeling was always there. I missed the hand drawings, I missed the pure opportunities for creation… where I would conceive something… anything… and on my own accord, I could expel that thought out into the world in any outlet or media possible. Over time, it became more and more evident in my everyday life… that I was not going to be happy until I could have that environment again. The environment, to create! To BE.

That moment to BE is here, well almost… thus ends my career as an architect. Time to witness the re-birth! … and I am all smiles. 🙂

Italian Country Hillside

20 Jan 2011 9:35pm

It’s the first skyline I’ve drawn in a while… a rolling Italian country hillside, complete with a field of poppies, Italian Cypress trees, and a winding path leading to a hilltop Italian village. Take me there…

New Beginnings

15 Jan 2011 3:14pm

It has been over three years since I last had a consistent online journal. I used to write at least three to four times a week, time permitting between classes during college of course! It was a great way to keep all my friends and family ‘up-to-date’ with everything I was doing while I was away in New York City studying architecture. It was even better when I was studying abroad in Italy! What a great way to show everyone what I was experiencing, through both words and photos. I look forward to doing the same here!

Writing has always been a great outlet, I’ve kept a physical handwritten journal for the past thirteen years! (I am almost completely through journal book #14!) Keeping an online journal, as well as a handwritten one is a great mixture of public and private.

So cheers to new beginnings! 2011 is going to be an exciting, adventurous, and happening year!
