"The Cortez" - My First Project for the "Binge" Art Show (Dec 2018)

I always worked in Stained Glass and Cast Glass for any art show I participated in … until I got my Glowforge! I’m hooked!

This was my first piece completely done on the Glowforge inspired by American Horror Story Season 4 - “Hotel”. The set design and detail was so beautiful in that series that the hotel had to come to life … and what better pop culture art show than one dedicated to “Binge” watching TV shows!

I didn’t have time to complete the piece to my liking and, after the show, figured out how to create wood inlay floors (thanks to all the lovely thread posts out there). I haven’t completed assembly with the new floor but have a pic below to show the inlay progress.

Thanks!

That’s amazing! The perspective is perfect (something I have difficulty with). Can’t wait to see what else you come up with.

I actually learned a thing or two about perspective drawing in working on this … I’m not much of drawer but i can block design decently. I found that having lines radiating out from one focal point (the center of the elevator in this case) allowed me to make the perspective much more crisp. Inkscape has a nice little “perspective” tool that takes flat drawings and distorts them to the shape you need … soooo helpful!
