Artist
I had several poems to choose from, but I picked the NiMo building, because Iíve always had an interest in the building, and Iím somewhat into the art deco movement.

Itís a beautiful building. It definitely has a fantastic quality, like a science fiction fantasyósomething mythical. I try to interject a lot of that, look for that, in illustration.

The poem provided a lot of the initial inspiration. Reading the poem and thinking what the poet was visualizing, and merging that with my own image.

I was also trying for a sense of drama. A sense of drama with the point of view, which is kind of the normal point of view that people see when they walk or drive by the building. But also a sense of drama with the light, which is captured by the poem.

the Salt City's art deco
stainless steel night light.
