Old Family Home Custom Pen & Ink Drawing

December 29, 2010

I always get excited to draw an old family home.  This one’s located on Savannah’s East Side.  Mini-prints were made for the entire family and given as little gifts over the holidays.  A nice way to remember your youth, no?

Even though we moved a lot during my childhood, I still feel a connection to each of the places we occupied.  Our time there may have been short-lived, but we worked hard to make each house a home.

A few weeks ago, my brother took a trip to Richmond, VA, and snapped this pic of our old place.  Oh the memories it uprooted!  I’ve often pondered sketching all of our old homes (I’ve had several clients do this, and it makes for quite the collection), but finding all those old photos from the pre-digital camera days, would be quite the challenge.
