Tree Top Living

Pencil, 2017

My drawing shows a vision of the future where we can live eco-friendly lives by embracing nature. What influenced my work was the idea that our society needs to have more sustainable building practices allowing us to stop deforestation and habitat loss and to live more harmoniously with the environment.

The subject matter shows several houses tucked in the branches of the treetops. The dark and the light values used in the drawing help to emphasize a better living habitat for humans that also still preserves nature. I used two-point linear perspective to communicate a realistic architectural design of these potential tree top homes.

My aim through this drawing was to communicate a progressive future for not just humans but for the natural world we live in as well.
