Mike Golden is the founder of Three Marks and the artist behind a design-related YouTube channel under the alias of Droquis. He is a big fan of Hugh Ferriss and has been creating incredible images inspired by the work of the famous American architect. 


Create a Hugh Ferriss inspired image. 

Mike has prepared some Ferriss inspired 3d models which you can download them from the link above. You are, of course, also free to use your own 3d models. Any mixed digital and analog techniques are allowed as long as it can be submitted as a JPG image.

Mike often does paintover tutorials on Twitch and YouTube, so if you feel that you get stuck during this competition, head over to his channels and check out some of his videos for inspiration.
