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?

Custom Pen and Ink Drawing of Old Family Home by Heather L. Young of theinklab

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.

My original Savannah sketches have been given a little *punch* of color!  (Sorry for the delay, but things had to be “just so” you know)  Each 8×10 print has been delicately hand watercolored by yours truly, making each one unique.  Of course, if you haven’t the space for an 8×10 and you must have a little something “Savannah,” then the Mini-Prints are for you!  They come matted ready to fit a 5×7 inch frame…(perfect for the tabletop frame) or a collection of little Savannah memories…take your pick!  You can find these little gems locally at ShopSCAD or purchase them online via TheInkLab. Enjoy!
