    This week's theme for illustration friday is CLEAN. When I was a young architect just out of college, I was working with an architect that designed very modern architecture, he asked me to design an elevation for a new discotheque we were building, and the sketches I came back with were, for his taste, very "scenographical" meaning, they looked too busy, like a theatre set. You see, in architecture slang, "clean" means simple design. (I think), this is a drawing of the way the final design of the elevation looked like, or at least that's how I remember it, you can see the finished project here:  varshiva nightclub 

    I like the way the sky looks so "dirty" it could also work for the "opposites" theme of last week. This sketch was made with pencil and acrylics on watercolor paper.

    The cleanest soul there is, the virgin Mary of Guadalupe. This is a detail form a painting I did called "494" It's acrylic on canvas with yellow tin foil.

    I went to school for architecture, too... I can relate! Great concepts and interpretation... I love the texture on the second illo, too.

    I love the first one and how the line drawing is left in pencil with the accent of the wash behind it. Very nice.
