My latest illustration is a bit of a departure from what I have been posting recently. I was searching through the Internet recently when I came upon a photo that caught my eye. I decided I wanted to draw it up.

This 12″ x 18″ digital illustration is of a recently renovated 19th century home located in Pennsylvania. As I wrote previously, the original photo of this house just caught my eye. What caught my eye was the colorful roof tiles, and shape of the house… not to mention the overall shape of the house… I just felt that this would be a fun piece to draw.

I also figured that by drawing this up, it may open up a new avenue to pursue in marketing my work. So, if you’d like a similar illustration of your home, building, office, whatever, please contact me.

The above two images display the full resolution of this piece. My idea was to create an image with a more “painterly” feel. As final touch, I added a canvas/varnish layer effect to create a “painting” piece.  You can view the original photo I based this image on here. So, this is my latest piece. Let me know what you think.
