Joseph Boquiren

Portland, Oregon based artist Joseph Boquiren has been drawing for much of his life. When he was a kid, he would read comic books and then create his own. As he continued to draw, he found interest in historic structures and bridges leading to an architectural degree and work with the Historic American Building Survey and the Historic American Engineering Record. These drawings archived at the Library of Congress not only save an essential piece of history but also showcase Joseph’s technical skills. These days if he’s not on a unicycle, bike, or speedskates, you’ll find him doing technical illustrations, 3D modeling, graphic novels, sketching of architecture, travels, dogs, people, and more.
