Artist's Description

This was an interesting, if not cruelly ironic, one to create.

The inspiration for drawing this particular work came from when I was searching Wikipedia and encountered the theatrical poster are for the 1974 film The Towering Inferno. In that artwork there is a striking view down the stricken, fictitious skyscraper, a clear testament to the magnitude and scale of the film it promoted.

Thus, the idea came to me that I’d recreate this artwork appropriately for the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers (minus the smoke and flames). Instead of being an image of devastation I intended to create a work that showed the towers in their heyday, looming above the city streets hundreds of feet below.
