These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

Old work, new perspective.

Only about halfway done. I did the design for this over a year ago but for
some reason there were no perspectives. So, Mike has been working on them for me.

As always design skills are mine, 3d skills are his.I'll post a finished version once it's done. Next he's putting in the monitors and product display on the walls, followed by additional signage/logo displays, product, and people. As I said, it's about half done

Nice looking area. the tables with their holders are very futuristic. I like the bottle display, too.

Thanks. It will look significantly different by the time its done, but I am happy with it so far.

And I design furniture so I dont have to shop.

the best reason. Looking forward to all this. Let me know when you're mostly done and I'll give the guy another heads-up

Are those cup/utensil holders coming out from the tables, or am I reading that entirely wrong? :)

No. This isn't a restaurant, though I understand why from this image (again, half done and with no product or logo to guide you) you would think so.

This is a small retail kiosk, about 600 square feet, located inside a larger indoor environment, like a mall, or a department store. What it sells are cosmetics, skin care and fragrances. The bottles you see on the back wall there are part of a "fragrance bar" that people can go to to have things custom blended. The tables are display tables. The little side pods can raise and lower. Since the products are smaller in size than say, your average toaster, in size, this allows them to be displayed on their own so they don't get too lost.

They're modeled after Bohr's model atoms.

D- I will certainly do so. The whole book (the commercial book) is about 40% done at this time. The amount of data that was lost was *enormous* and will take some time to rebuild. Since Mike does all my 3d modeling, it's also a matter of fitting in rebuilding it all where he can fit it in on his schedule. After this project is over, we're going to be working on a sushi bar, followed by another restaurant, a large retail store and an office space.

No worries - don't kill yourself for it.

Im not. But this needs to be done regardless. The disk isnt going to be found and I need this stuff done no matter what. I need a porfolio. The commercial book, which is more important to me (by far) will take a little time, due to both of our schedules. But I don't have the calendar on my plate now, save the shipping, so there is more time to do this correctly.

I know you do, but you need time for youself too

(I know, I know.... teaching my grandmother to suck eggs/pot calling the kettle black/jumping to conclusions/do as I do not... etc etc)
