Hello all, I am back with a new illustration after taking a break to concentrate
on photography for awhile. This is a cross-post-with my more active website,
The Denver Eye!
This Googie sign once stood in front of the Scotchman burger place on Federal,
north of I-70. It started as The Frosted Scotchman in 1950, shortened to just
The Scotchman in 1953, sadly closing in 1977. But before that, it was the Denver
American Graffiti -style malt shop of choice for hot-rod cruisers!
While my drawing can look a little lifelike, this is not a photo. I illustrated the lettering
and ‘Scotch girl’ in the 2D vector application CorelDraw, then I import those into the 3D drawing application Google Sketchup to create the rest of the sign. I hope you enjoy the results!
