Ivan S. Chow, design consultant & concept artist

 

These are a sampling of projects worked on with Bill since about 1988. Some were collaborations while most was "lending a hand" to Bill in his concept design work for casino resort projects worldwide. My good fortune!

 

 

Ashmont Retirement Community, Hendersonville, NC.

 

This was a proposal Bill and I put together for a retirement community planned in North Carolina for a middle-eastern developer. We traveled there, scoured the beautiful site, met with city officials, slapped together what I still think is a fabulous project, but were "skunked" by a rather slippery client who essentially got our services for free. One could be bitter or one could move on. Bill and I always move on...
