WARNING: I’m constantly reassessing the cross-promotion of the JLH blog on E82 so this may be last time you’ll receive updates on the News page. So make sure to add JLH Omnimedia to your favorites or better yet add the RSS feed to receive project reports, design notes, and sneak peeks on all upcoming E82 events.              



The Hidden Art of E82

Being a highly analytical Historian AND a perfectionist Designer can lead to some really interesting (read that arduous) methods of art execution. A few years ago I “constructed” a bulb-for-bulb recreation of the Italian inspired Lights of Winter, my absolute favorite Holiday experience (which you’ll find here). Towards the end of last year I began experimenting with a few new techniques that, if done correctly could create a far more elegant and subtle illustration. Furthermore, I want to create a schematically perfect set of lights that could be used for multiple projects in the future. In order to accomplish this I decided the best method was to recreate the entire archway (this time with flanking light patterns) below is the armature with guidelines for the 2011 Lights of Winter vector. And strangely enough, this particular piece of digital engineering will never appear on any product.

Side Note: One would think that the arches themselves, with their delicate French curves and spirals would be the hardest thing to recreate. Surprisingly, the Celtic-like “Light Grids” (as I call them) were literally mind-boggling as dissecting the intricate complexity of what-color-goes-where did give me a headache while determining the proper representation.
