This picture is from 2000. That pre-millennial year with the still ominous 2 and all those zero's was a time of major changes for me. By the end of 2000 I would be re-learning elementary mathematics, due to my visit to Fermilab outside of Chicago where I determined to learn physics.
I did a series of small originals for Philcon that year. This one was a miniature of a gleaming, futuristic city based on Chicago (which I had recently visited for Worldcon). The tower is inspired by the Lighthouse of Alexandria, hence the composite name "Chi-Zandria."
