The Albuquerque Water Tower Part I: We visit the Site

What would the wildest illustration job be? Lisa has been commissioned to do art for a 175-foot watertower. Yes. This is true. The adventure starts with us flying out to Albuquerque this past February to meet with the great folks at Mesa del Sol. Amy Coburn, the very cool Director of Residential Development, brings us to view the site.

We will be updating the blog with watertower news every Wednesday.

Here’s Lisa looking at the plans and the local flora.

Here’s the beginning of the building of the tower and the site (aerial view).


Stay tuned to see the research Lisa does, and the limitations and delights of doing art for such a mammoth public art project.
