Building A High-Rise

After a couple of semesters studying commercial art, I concluded that I could build a high-rise office building using pushpins, mat board, and masking tape. I wasn’t thinking scale, either.

Thirty-five years later, my faith in the small amenities of the studio is undiminished. Indeed, it has been strengthened by the addition of film industry gaffer tape (so useful it is kept locked behind glass in the Righteous Value Hardware resource up north), extra-long needle sharp aluminum push pins, zip ties, foam mounting tape, very hot glue, hiker’s nickel-sized dental floss, and linen bookbinding supplies.

This collection will earn its keep in the smallest space,
paying so well it would not be worth the time it would take to count the decimal places.
