A Can-Do CAD Artist...


Friday, July 31st, 2009

 

People see the word "Landscape" in my business name and immediately (and to a certain extent justifiably come to the conclusion that I am a "landscaper". Yes, I have done a myriad of landscaping but my business is all about woodworking for the landscape. When the time came to redesign my web site I wanted my own set of custom drawings that would help illustrate that I am a woodworker and not a landscaper. 

 

I performed exhaustive searches on the internet for free clipart but could not find anything that truly suited my fastidious requirements. What I wanted was simple; vector art drawings with a bit of wood color and perhaps some wood grains thrown in for a more realistic appeal.  I had to have that "just right" appearance...

 

One day it dawned on me that the answer was right in front of me all the time and I didn't even realize it. When my shop was selected to be premiered in Wood Magazine's America's Best Home Workshops, Volume 3, I worked extensively with Roxanne (Roxy)  LeMoine, a freelance graphic artist and owner of CAD ART Design & Illustration.

I sent Roxy an e-mail one day asking about doing some vector drawings for me and, well, the rest is history. Roxy does an exceptional job transforming my ideas into reality. She is exceptionally talented, easy to work with and very prompt. True, I tend to trickle work to her and she sneaks it in when she has time (a schedule that suits me fine) but more often than not my artwork is received much earlier then I predict.

 

Roxy uses a variety of software suites including Design CAD, Auto CAD, Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop and Corel Draw to name a few.  She is quite knowledgeable with each platform and her work appears in many books and magazines. I would highly recommend a viewing of her web site to see examples of her artistry. 

 

If you have any questions or comments about this blog entry please do not hesitate to send me an e-mail. Thanks and be safe when working with tools!!!
