GSF Magellan



Just a few blocks from the Rotterdam Tebodin office, in the harbour, there is the Verolme wharf where enormous oil drilling platforms are being built and restored. This is a sketch of one of them, the GSF Magellan. It's huge structure, and it was very difficult to convey its size in the sketch. I just found out that these legs are 150m high....

Was erg lastig om de vorm te pakken te krijgen.
