Postwar Paul

Getting layout tips from John Allen is like taking guitar lessons from Hendrix...

 

When you learn from the best...

 

Given the choice I'd prefer guitar lessons from Les Paul, I never could stand Hendrix.

Noise, just noise.  Ick!

It's certainly taking on a Southwest look all right!

If you develop a sudden craving for tacos or some Tex-Mex you'll know why!

 Although my mountains are flats, they are 3 levels deep. I hope this will help create at least some depth.

This could be a John Allen- esque scene. He liked trains flying over high and impossible canyons. Take a look at his work...

It was hard not to think of "The Monolith Monsters" as I went through all of your pics!

Thank you !!

I'm trying to go for the dramatic-hopefully creating visual " wow", because I don't have very much space otherwise. I have mentioned John Allen many times, and he found ways to make even small areas seem complete, and with great depth. 

Not that I'll ever be even close to his level in my lifetime, but I'll keep trying.

Thanks Again !

Paul
