"Professional Architect lives almost by faith. When called upon he can do the job without fear or favour. He possesses aspecialized skill and lives by a code of ethics cloaked in honour andintegrity. He is expected to speak his mind and give his views. Whenfaced with absolute wrong, he can resolutely disagree and walk away." quote from THE PROFESSIONAL MAN by Ar Dr Tan Loke Mun PRESIDENT PAM

September 2006

These are my first few sketches that I did before I started using sketch-up. The project is about a refurbishment for an existing retail park. The idea is to give emphasis on the angle of entrance signage to be observed from both sides of the front road. Due to the location of the project being set back behind from the main road, it is vital to emphasis on the signage to be visible as much as possible. Hopefully this will eventually overcome the current problem of not being visually visible from the main road.

I sketched the proposed design on top of an existing photo layered by tracing paper. Then it was scanned and coloured in Photoshop. It would be better if we could colour using markers but it's hard to find full range marker colours in firm nowadays. Maybe the method is more expensive than normal printing. But I believe the digital edge art work seems to be less valueable than an original sketches even though it has the same artistic features. I would still prefer a canvas painting than a normal print out of the same drawing.
