  1. I think I’m finally done with my latest drawing, The Streetcar Boat. In 1905 there were streetcars that went from Minneapolis to the shore of Lake Minnetonka, but the people living around Lake Minnetonka needed a way to continue to their homes. So a set of 6 steam boats were built to resemble streetcars. These boats added 27 more stops to the streetcar line. In 1926 the 6 boats were deemed no longer necessary and were scuttled in the middle of the lake. In 1979 a diver found the wreck of the Minnehaha and it was raised. After 17 years of restoration it was put back in service on weekends in the summer making runs between two cities across the lake. Being 1600 miles away and the wrong time of the year, I used pictures I had and pictures on the web to construct as much detail as possible. Right down to screws and rivets. At 4,638 layers, all vectors, it’s my largest drawing so far. Zooming from the full image to some of the smaller detail requires a zoom of about 80,000%. So AD is about the only program capable of the detail.
