Soundís like fun. You could make one of the town where you live like in Beetlejucie.
My Dad has a huge collection of Lionel trains and accessories. As a kid we would always run them on the floor of the living room. Growing up we were always going to build a layout like the ones we would see down in San Diego at this train museum in Griffith park. But my Mom would never let it happen. She actually wanted to park her car in the garage.(Can you believe the nerve.) So anyway last year I talked my girlfriend into letting us put a layout out in our garage. It's still a work in progress but it is coming along. We finally got the down town to light up witch makes it fun to run in the dark. Some nights I'll just kick back in the garage with a few cold ones and play with the trains. It's actually kind of fun and quite relaxing.

See, that's exactly what I want to do. I want to run a couple trains through it too.
I actually thought about building a shed in the back yard for that sole purpose. But I don't have enough room to make it worth while.

Re: My Drawings

Some day I hope you’re able to. It's a fun hobby with an endless amount of landscapes to make with it. As you know you just need a space.

I actually drew a small scale city that I wanted to build and was planning to put a running river through it.

What material would you use for the basic landscape? Molded styrofome?

If youíre going to be using water that's a good question I've never seen anyone try that. Chicken wire and paper mashie work well in dry areas. There are some good books on the subject you might want to read.Amazon.com: Build a Better Toy Train Layout: Books: John Grams,Dick Christianson

Thank you.
With the exception of Thomas Kinkade, all the artwork in my house is mine. (I forgot I have a couple Kinkade's in the bedroom...it's the "theme". I even have the border was thomas kinkade...and a throw.)

Re: My Drawings

Very nice work jsarno. I couldn't draw that stuff if I went to school until I was 90.

While I do think anyone can do it with a lot of practice, I have to admit, I do think you need to be born with the talent to make it really work.
I have no clue where I got it too. I am the only lefty in my family and I am the only one that is artistic. I am also the only one that actually made significant achievements in sports.
Makes me think I was adopted. But I also have a perfectionist streak, and I have to be #1. I also bring that to my work, and while at times it can isolate me (cause people like to be lazy) it earns me raises and praise.

Re: My Drawings

Very nice work jsarno! I am an architect by trade (hence the name "Dlyne8r") and I always appreciate looking at other's artwork. In an age where most of our drawings are computer generated, and photos enhanced by PhotoShop, it's nice to see that there are still people that can pick up a pencil / brush, whatever, and be so incredibly creative. Hand drafting is what spurred my interest in architecture more years ago than I can remember, but I was forced into CADD development and rarely do anything as creative as what you've illustrated. Keep it up!

Thanks man.
I do think that kind of artwork is dieing talent for the reasons you already mentioned. Fewer and fewer people are embracing that talent, and to make matters worse, a lot of schools are dopping their art classes for kids. I think all kids need art and music classes.
