The Miami University of Ohio

From 2010 to 2015, I made frequent trips to Oxford, Ohio.  We had a special investment there that made the 4 hour-drive worth the while. A friend of mine, and talented rendering artist, asked me on occasion if I would take photos of some of the architecture on campus.  These images helped him depict detail and accuracy for his pen and watercolor drawings.  I took dozens of shots each visit – mostly with an iPad, of the Georgian style halls, frat houses and facilities. Experimenting with Photoshop, I converted these photos into a watercolor-esque look and feel.  They were then printed onto a textured, 100% rag content paper. After presenting the idea to the campus bookstore in 2013, I became an official licensed vendor of the university and sold high quality prints through the two retail outlets in town. The rest of the story is for a different conversation.
