From Fox2Now:

ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – An architect from across the globe is in town to showcase some of his drawings of downtown St. Louis. The list did not include sketches of Busch Stadium or the Gateway Arch, but rather a side of downtown that is often overlooked.

Peter Rush made an impromptu visit to St. Louis in March, following a presentation he made at Ball State University in Indiana.

“I love to travel,” he said. “And whenever I travel I like to visit cities. St. Louis is just a bit of a minor detour. And I thought ‘I have to go here.’ And I was just blown away.”

Peter is in town all month, sketching scenes of St. Louis. And the great news is that all his sketches will be for sale October 7th. The cereal box sketches measure ~12in x 20in. Others are soft pencil sketches on white paper. With time to plan for the October event, some larger works will likely be included. Timing also may allow for commissioned work on a first come, first served basis (email alex at nextstl.com for more info). Sketches are planned to start at ~$75 and reach several hundred depending on size.

    Not all of my drawings are on boxes, I do use normal paper as well. I understand the boxes may seem a distraction but please you should come and see them. The shape, creases and color of the box integrate with the urban space I’m sketching.

    St Louis is a great city and I am really enjoying my time here. Everyone is welcome to see my exhibition, please come to the opening. It will be nice opportunity for St Louis people who love their city to meet, catch up and I hope have a look on how someone from far away sees their city

    Wonderful drawings, not sure why he feels the need to use old boxes though.
