Today, the world of architectural illustration is littered with digital, computer generated work. My goal as an artist is to show the viewer the beauty and detail of architectural subjects in the traditional medium of pencil. Excellence in realism is what I strive for, as my drawings intend to emphasize all of the elements and surroundings of a building that make each one so unique. I study how light interacts with each structure and through value contrast and varying pencil strokes, create textures that lift the subject off of the paper and bring the architecture to life. Achieving this with just a pencil challenges my skill, tests my humility, and ultimately rewards and inspires me to create more.

"Freedom Rising"

Graphite pencil 3H-5B Mars Lumographs & 0.3 Pentel GraphGear 1000 Mechanical.

My most difficult and time consuming drawing to date, "Freedom Rising" depicts One World Trade Center, often referred to as the Freedom Tower, rising over lower Manhattan. It is a symbol of the resiliency of New York City and America. Prints can be ordered here:

Hello there fantastic stranger. :) Here to spread the positive vibes. <3
Being positive is great. :)
From riding a roller coaster to just eating a snack you enjoy, smiling, laughing, or spreading the love, we've all been positive at least once in our lives.
And today,
I want your life to be positive.
I hope you'll have a dream tonight about doing your favorite things, be it being with loved ones, watching a new season of your favorite show, anything really.
Because you deserve all of the happiness in the world. You are amazing, you are great, you are loved and worth it. Never forget that. <3
But most of all, I want YOU
-that's right, you-
To have a positive and wonderful day. <3

Cordially, CelineDGD,
Happy Helper of the Happy-Squad
