Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve Illustrative Travels Along the Maya Coast of Quintana Roo,

with Steve Radzi, Illustrator/Artist

Not since Frederick Catherwood trekked Mexico’s remote Yucatan Peninsula in the mid-1800s has anyone meticulously portrayed these important Maya archaeological treasures in situ, sometimes under difficult circumstances. (Muyil, Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve, Preclassic - shown on left)

 

Steve’s recent drawings and illustrations of Maya structures found along the coast of Quintana Roo, Mexico, are executed with meticulous care. Many of the structures, mostly from the Late Post Classic Maya period, stand in a precarious condition, some completely collapsing. Under difficult circumstances, Radzi has hand-illustrated the ruins of the ancient Maya for more than 30 years.

Steve’s artwork (Maya-inspired and otherwise) has been widely exhibited and published. He currently creates storyboards and set designs for TV and film. His credits include having designed background pre-production art for the full-length animated film, The Hobbit. Come meet the artist and see all his illustrations from a recent trip to Quintana Roo as well as hearing the great travel stories he shares.
