This is the eclectic office of head curator Dr. Robert Bly in the American Museum of Civilization located in Shiloh, California. The office is filled with artifacts and knickknacks collected from his many worldwide travels. It is in this office where Shelby Bly and Joel Rio will meet for the first time.
This concept setting is the Office of Robert Bly at the American Museum of Civilization. I tried to make it as cluttered with exotic mementos as I could while still looking like a professional person’s office. I combined three or four sets worth of figures and props to create this scene and I still need to do a little more work on it before it’s ready to be included in my illustrations. I’ll add more detail shots from different angles later on as it is a detailed filled scene. For now you can see an overview of the office in the render above and a few different alternate views below.
I plan to use this setting for a Promotional Artwork or two before I use it in the actual novel. Stay tuned to this site for more info on that! The office still looks a little “off” to me for some reason. I’ll keep working on it until it is perfect or as close to perfect as I can manage. I am getting closer to having it ready though!
