My parents came up my freshman year for parents' weekend and we staid at the Hotel Syracuse. It's a beautiful and classic building, with huge windows and chandeliers, and beautiful columns and carpeting. It's a gem for Syracuse to have.

For the illustration, I went back, and asked if I could take some reference photographs. I took tons, because there were so many beautiful compositions. There was actually a wedding about to go on. So I took pictures as people greeted their guests.

I was just playing around with different angles.I found this angle interesting, where youíre looking into the hotel, anticipating entering, seeing what the hotel has to offer. And I like the anonymity of the figures in the painting. You almost donít notice them.
