I am working on a project commission that involves some new things I am trying, so thought others might enjoy the journey. The customer wanted a small cross to go in a pastor’s study, but wanted something somewhat contemporary/artistic.

First step was to submit several ideas in rough sketch form.

Second step was to refine a drawing based on the one the client preferred.

It comes in handy being a graphic designer. I then took this sketch and converted it into an Adobe Illustrator file that will allow me to print multiple templates as needed and be confident they are identical. Probably this could also be done in Sketchup, but I don’t know it as well yet, so went with what I know.

Next installment I will start detailing the actual construction.
