VISTA SERIES – Growing Light

Rising from the earth, the futuristic greenhouse of The Land is encircled by growing light beams glowing in grass green and sun yellow signifying the symbiosis created by photosynthesis.

Designer’s Note: Creating these backgrounds is sometimes done in silence but more often is accompanied by music. In almost every case, the music played has nothing to do with the subject matter, but in this case I realized just how much The Land looks like the Devil’s Tower featured in Close Encounters while listening to its score. The film came out 1977 and The Land was designed shortly after its release so one can help but wonder if the film’s climatic location served as the direct inspiration for the pavilion. What Do You Think?

VISTA SERIES - The Power of the Sun

Witness the Universe of Energy radiating with the power of the Sun. Its deep red hues gradually heating up to a white hot glow feeding the pavilion’s photovoltaic array for your “Ride on Sunshine”.

Warning: You might need sunglasses to view this edition of the Vista Series!

Designer’s Note: Believe it or not but the most time consuming aspect of making these is also the smallest and most difficult thing to see. The Line Art of each pavilion is (will be) carefully designed to not only capture the essence of the architecture but have the same “weight” for each subject.

Announcing The EPCOT VISTA Series

Taking its cue from the Aurora Borealis and Light Beamed style backgrounds made popular by the Windows and Mac operating systems. Epcot Vistas is an abstraction of the logos, color palettes, and architecture of Epcot’s many pavilions.
It should come as no shock that the first of these is the Journey Into Imagination. Its spiral logo is extrapolated in the light beams that surround it, with the pavilion’s signature blue and purple color scheme serving as the inspiration for the hues in this piece.
