Haywood St.

This piece was one I did for my lovely step sister who resides in East Falls, Philadelphia. Admittedly it took me about six months to get this done for her, as I promised it to her on her birthday in the end of May, and have been so busy since then. It ended up being half belated bday present, half christmas present. Everything was colored with pen and marker except for the brick work of the house, which is acrylic paint.

The color blue of the shutters and the molding required a lot of layering but I 
think it came out pretty well in the end.
Below is a little detail shot of her cat Phoenix in the window.

13th and Morris

Sigh... I love getting commissions of houses that I well, love. This is one of the giant-porched beauties located on Morris between Broad and 13th Street. I can't imagine how lovely and spacious it is inside. Though I must say making a brown house look nice is a little hard, this was still such a nice project to work on.
