illustrating Mariposa Grove natural history

Tom contributed illustrations to the interpretive panels installed at the newly restored and redesigned Mariposa Grove in Yosemite National Park, through his work with Leslie Stone Associates.

Legacy Park sketchbook

Tom worked with Leslie Stone Associates on the interpretive component of Malibu's Legacy Park, providing illustrations for panels and designing a series of large mosaic animal sculptures.

Mosaic-artist Robin Indar created the sculptures using colors and materials representative of Malibu's particular art and craft heritage - for a stunning added dimension.

The park encompasses four coastal habitats – including Southern California’s only coastal prairie – and was designed in part to serve as a living learning center. A series of interpretive nodes present the plants and animals representative of those coastal habitats.

Legacy Park won an Honor Award for Design in the Parks, Recreation, Trails and Open Space category from the American Association of Landscape Architects.

lest we forget the Clemente Inn

If you've ever driven past the pile of bricks that used to be the Clemente Inn -- behind the chain-link fence in Fetters Hot Springs on Highway 12 in Sonoma Valley -- you may have wondered what it used to look like back in the 1920s.

One of its many owners in the last 20 years was John Erly, and this rendering was done for him based on an old photo.
