I spent the afternoon in a room full of engineers as we worked out the many details of the new park. Our task was to figure out how we could use conventional methods and materials to build something pretty exceptional. We went through page after page of blueprints, referencing my concept art and I filled a good part of a sketchbook scribbing quick drawings to help everyone understand how it would all work and fit together in a way that satisfied everyone. These fellows have to sign off on all my designs and our work when we are done.
The meeting went exceptionally well and was over much, much quicker than I imagined. We have a wonderful team of supporting professionals, eager to work with us and help to realize this cool project. It is going to be a lot of fun!
As I got back to my studio this evening I was looking over the work the crew did in my absence. I grabbed this cool shot of the cactus framework as the last light faded from the sky.
It's been a wonderful first week of progress - thanks to the efforts of a hard working crew.
