Cambridge Cosmos

Cambridge, Mass. has got a lot of large and oddly shaped houses. I used to wander around my neighborhood drawing them. This was one of them, with a fanciful curved wrap-around porch and a tall conical turret. It was only a matter of moments until I saw it as a rocket taking off into space. So Cambridge's houses became spaceships.

"Cambridge Cosmos" is gouache on illustration board, about 6" x 6", March 1986.

Note: You are seeing a lot of vintage art here because I am working on something digital which is a portfolio piece and not my usual subject; it's game-related. Please stay tuned.
