3D Fitz.com - Computer Generated Model of Edmund Fitzgerald
Today marks the 36th year since the Fitz was lost. May our hearts and minds go out to those in remembrance.
My image "The Last Storm" has been printed in BBC Knowledge magazine. The magazine ran an article on rogue waves and how the Fitz may have been lost to such a fate.

Prints of nautical/marine image "The Last Storm" are approximately 8" x 10", printed on
8 1/2" x 11" archive-quality Epson Premium Luster Semi-Gloss paper for a beautiful permanent print using an Epson Stylus Photo Pro R1800. Prints are $20 each (shipping included) and I ship the prints USPS after the transaction is completed through Paypal. Prints are usually received within a week.

10/14/2009 - New Photos Added!
My entire collection of Edmund Fitzgerald reference photos has been added. Many are photos I have taken of blueprints, scale models, and other similar ore carrier ships docking in Marquette, Michigan. I've collected them from many places on the Internet, so I'm not sure to whom credit goes, but if any are copyrighted, I wil remove them.
Edmund Fitzgerald Prints
The Edmund Fitzgerald can be seen as she last was above the waves in this print I have made. This print was featured in The Minneapolis Star-Tribune in November, 2005 and would make a fine addition to any nautical, marine or Michigan History prints you may have.
Currently, I do not have the resources to produce any new renders or prints of the image, but the image is available for license for blogs, magazines, newspapers and such.

About the Project
The 3D Edmund Fitzgerald started as my senior project for my BFA seminar in college at Northern Michigan University, on the coast of Lake Superior. Dedicating 500 hours that semester and summer to work on this shipbuilding project, it quickly took on a life of its own. What you see here is the (continuing) result of that love affair, rendered down to the very rivets on the lifeboats. Many thanks to those who find the Edmund Fitzgerald 3D project stimulating and uplifting.
Here are pics and photos of my model as well as current information on the 3D project and the Edmund Fitzgerald. If you would like to leave me a comment, please visit my contact page. This site designed and hosted by Forge22, all scripts, HTML, and CSS coded and validated.
