Fabulous Stairway

This fabulous and possibly unbuildable stairway is one of the designs I created for a visionary engineer who paid me to illustrate his fantasy world. You can read about the project here. He wanted a lavish art-nouveau look to the buildings as well as an erotic element which would pervade the entire decorative scheme. You can see the male and female bodies as tree trunks at the sides of the upper door. His imaginary people had a lot of leisure time so they had plenty of dalliance but were also menaced by ogre-like invaders who occasionally had to be vanquished. I did a lot of art for this project but none of it was ever published.
