GOLDRUSH THEME PARK CONCEPT
Hey Mice Chatters!! This is another design for a theme park based on the GOLDRUSH of British Columbia, Canada. Its set about 1853. This is a Pen and Ink illustration. The design is mine and I did the Illustration, but it was a conceptual collaboration with my partner Jeff Cox. Please enjoy the pics and commentary.
