Established Cape May Artist Paints Waterpark Renderings for 2012

Neal McPheeters Brings Waterpark 
Renderings to Life for Morey’s Piers


The Wildwoods, NJ – February 21, 2012 – It’s hard to imagine what Raging Waters and Ocean Oasis will look like for the 2012 season with dust, dirt and bulldozers presently everywhere.

“With two new waterpark attractions in the works, we needed a solid vision to focus the construction efforts,” said Jack Morey, Executive Vice President.“The artwork challenges the engineers and architects to bring it all to life.”

Jack Morey commissioned Neal McPheeters, an accomplished local painter who has created book and magazine covers as well as illustrations for comics and graphic novels, to create high quality painted renderings of Morey’s Piers two new waterpark attractions for 2012.

McPheeters contributed illustrations for books published by DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Scholastic Books, The Children's Television Workshop, Warren Publishers and numerous other publishers and hundreds of book titles.

In 1994, McPheeters and his wife moved to Cape May where he began creating paintings depicting the beaches and wetlands along the Atlantic Ocean and Delaware Bay. They opened a gallery, Peter McPhee Fine Arts, in Stone Harbor in 2003.

“This project was a great opportunity to do a unique kind of landscape,” said Neal McPheeters.

The painted renderings will be used in the general brochure for 2012 and will be displayed in the Morey’s Piers offices.
