Infrastructure began as a sketch in which I was trying to create a sense of scale, sort of like John Harris does in his amazing work. Of course, my style and skill is nothing at all like John Harris. He was, nevertheless, my inspiration for this illustration.

I don’t think I was entirely successful in reaching the initial goal. My problem is I got hung up in all the faux technological details I was trying to create and sort of lost the plot of the initial idea.

That happens a lot, especially when there’s no real stake in the result, like there would be if I were doing this for a client.

When I’m dealing with down time and just looking to have some fun, it’s enjoyable to begin these sketches and let the ideas meander until something interesting develops.

This also made for a fun fake book cover illustration in a sci fi vein.
