Amongst the Treetops                             



Several thousand years forward following the Great Event, this long-surviving family have developed a new life overlooking the treetops of a dense forest of mature redwoods, some several hundred metres high. With the new dangers of this era, and the constant risks they face this castle-like outpost has developed atop a rocky hilltop, having started as nothing more than a basic shelter.

As the family adopted passing survivors and began to thrive again, the structure gained additional wings, as they re-discovered how to generate power, harness the energy of sunlight, employ smoke signals to communicate with others, and eventually hone skills and crafts unique to the local materials they have to work with.  

It is an 'ecological' building in the simplest and most organic sense, having grown up from only what was to hand and what basic skills in construction they had- faint remnants of architectural 'styles' (pre-apocalyptic) you may see, but they are really nothing more than the prosaic responses to local conditions, and are all the more honest for that. Make no mistake however- in this new era humans are in a constant fight for survival, and every day poses fresh danger.

A clear view over the hundred-mile forest as the sun sets...

This piece was a combination of technical and freehand drawing- the contrast of styles was my way of contrasting the human settlement with the more powerful force of nature.
