In 1904 the Jekyll Island Club was referred to as “the richest, the most exclusive, the most inaccessible club in the world,” according to Munsey’s Magazine.  The Club still lives up to it’s grand title, this sketch a mere detail of the sprawling building and lush grounds.  Click Here to read some of the fascinating history behind the Jekyll Island Club.

Love love love the Harper Fowlkes House!  Beautiful inside and out, and it’s been on my list to draw for ages.  (my right hand is still crippled from all the last minute details applied last night) The original has been sold, but you can bet I’ll be offering some variety of prints in the not-so-distant future.

I am, however, drawing quilled flowers for none other than Miss  Valerie.

 

 

I absolutely adore drawing  historic homes!  The architectural details here are impeccable.

St Louis Row House Custom Pen and Ink Drawing by Heather L Young of theinklab

St. Louis, MO (my first ink in this state?)

Established in 1806 and restored some 200 years later in 2006, a labor of love no doubt.
