The Guggenheim Museum has asked me to create a Pop-Out! of their iconic building on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. I’m thrilled about it, but this Pop-Out! is going to be a challenge. The biggest one being how to interpret those curves? My work is very flat and it’s all about simplifying lines and complex shapes while keeping the subject recognizable. It has to read correctly. Sometimes I go too far and people aren’t quite sure what they’re looking at. Other times I don’t go far enough and the graphics are heavy and unappealing.
I’ll be blogging about the process under the tag Guggenheim Museum Pop-Out!
Step 1: Take LOTS of photographs.
