House Sketches | offthebeatenpress.com

I have always doodled little sketches of buildings. Most of the time the end up being only around three inches in size. I even did a small series of “Places I Once Called Home” over the past few years. This year for the holidays (and beyond) I wanted to offer some more detailed illustrations of homes for other people.

My coworker commission my first one and I posted a photo of it on Instagram and used other examples I had to make an Etsy listing and the orders started coming in quick! Homes are such intimate places and they can mean so much to so many people.

Having a photograph of your home is nice, but a lot of care goes into the sketches I am doing. I try to keep them light and whimsical. It is never my intent to do them wholly realistic – I want to capture the essence of the home, without the details of the illustration being a distraction from the overall image.

Drawing these is really enjoyable for me and I hope I can keep it up and that people continue to buy them.
