Temple of Saturn

During the pre-millennial years of the mid to late 90s I did a series of concept drawings for an engineer who wanted his private fantasy world illustrated. The name of the world was "Kallitechnia," or in Greek, "beautiful technology." He wanted to express his ideas on technology, beauty, relationships, and biology. I got to do a lot of fanciful design work to his specifications, and he was beginning to build a website for it when he ran out of money for the project. 

This image is his "Temple of Saturn" shaped like the planet, where the neo-pagan Kallitechnians went to worship the gods of technological imagination and physical beauty.

Your buildings and landscapes are such an inspiration to me. You really have a knack for transporting the viewer, even in the black and white drawings.
