Home Sweet Home!

Not for me, mind you! I'm stuck in the apartment with no washer and dryer or dishwasher until the end of time...but enough about me!

A friend of mine recently purchased her first home, and commissioned an illustration for a moving announcement. I think it will be pretty cute! Home portraits are really fun to do.

Pencil first.




And a bit of color.


(Photos were taken at night, so they're looking a bit peak-ed, but you get the gist...)

Your friend is so lucky, that is beautiful work! I love the banner at the top.

This is SO pretty! What a great way to commemorate a new home (or to collect images of the homes you've lived in). Great idea!

As if I were not jealous enough as it is! Love the drawing :)

Robin said...

I love it Marissa! Thank you sooooooo much! Can't wait to send out the announcements.

Just lovely! You're so talented, and it's so fantastic that you share that rich talent with your friends. Miss you!
