Project Update: I will be illustrating some of the exciting things that are happening in Over-The-Rhine. The project has expanded from a cover illustration to a 10 page spread with illustrations. I have spent a lot of time walking around this area of downtown. It is fun to see all the changes.
I'm very excited about a new project, photographs of Over-The-Rhine for an upcoming publication. I went downtown today to walk around and take a look. It is amazing how vibrant and active Washington Park has become - on a Friday morning. There was a group of young ladies about 8 years old playing tiny violins while being accompanied by an orchestra in the bandstand! It was so amazing! Here are some images I captured:
Wouldn't this be a beautiful bike path?! It has been awhile since I have walked up to this area. This is adjacent to Ault Park. I was amazed at how overgrown it has become from lack of use, but the tracks and tressels are in great shape for a path! See the plan: Wasson Way and Wasson Way article
I love this guys work! I met him at Summerfair a few years ago. I have one of his paintings hanging in our living room. It transport me to another place every time I look at it. Here is a link to his website: Andy Fletcher Blog
On mornings like this, when the fog hangs in the river valley and the skies are clear blue just above on the hillsides, I love to head over to Turpin Farm. It is an area that remains unchanged amongst all the urban/suburban sprawl. It sits along the Little Miami River.
