"I am being restored"

A couple of weeks ago, a friend asked me to make a drawing of a home that he and some others are renovating in my neighborhood.

He wanted me to base it off of the series I did where I imagined what old dilapidated buildings might be thinking.

He was also inspired by this sign that he saw in a historic building's window once.

Here are the final two results, the first drawn free-hand with graphite and the second traced/free-hand in ink with trees and shrubs added. They are going to use the drawings for promotional purposes- flyers and hopefully a t-shirt (fingers crossed!).

Let me know if you want one done of your home or historic building. I want to make more.
