My Take on Sunset Boulevard

This is a personal project. I went through the script of Billy Wilder's 1949 film: Sunset Boulevard and designed all the major locations as if I were the art director/set designer. The locations that needed to be historically acurate are, the others I created based on the discription of the scene in the script. THESE ARE NOT THE SHOTS IN THE MOVIE they are my compositions.
There are 18 drawings in the series, the average size is 13.5" by 32" but the biggest (Norma Desmond's living room) is 13.5" by 7 feet!
I had a gallery show in 2005. It was incredibly gratifying to have over 100 friends and well wishers attend the opening night! Many thanks friends.
