This cartoon accompanied an article in our November 2003 Wright Stuff about the Xscream ride at the top of the Stratosphere Tower in Las Vegas.
Ironically, soon (summer 2010) work will be completed on the Stratosphere Sky Jump - a ride not too different from the one shown here. Like all rides atop the Stratosphere Tower, Wright Engineers provided engineering services.
Brent Wright is a structural engineer licensed in 39 states and also a former Nevada licensed general contractor. He is a father of 5, grandfather of 10, and a woodworking, gardening, and outdoor adventure enthusiast who has summitted some of the tallest peaks in the US, Africa, and South America. He regularly exercises the LEFT side of his brain as the CEO of Wright Engineers, a multi-discipline engineering firm with five offices in the western US that has been recognized both as one of the fastest growing engineering firms in the nation and as one of the nation's best firms to work for.
His love for drawing began at an early age, and creating cartoons for Wright Engineers’ monthly e-News gives him a chance to exercise more of the RIGHT side of his brain.
