House Map!...


This was a time consuming one. When we did the House Industries 10 year book, our AD Andy Cruz wanted a double page spread of an illustrated map that essentially had caricatures of all the past and present "House" employees jammed onto it. It also served as a visual guide to some of the influences that each one of us has. For example, Andy is an avid fan of most things Polynesian, hence the House Tiki Type collection of years ago... so he ended up in Florida at the legendary Mai Kai sipping a fine drink. Different people that we've worked with are scattered around here too. This was done by illustrating all of the pieces onto bits of paper and such, ruffling the edges up for effect and then pasting them onto the US of A, also made of torn paper. Then that whole big mess was attached to a large painted board that stood in as the water. It's probably 5 feet wide. I know things are hard to see, I'll post some close ups in a few...
