I'm still here I promise, just haven't posted in a while... yet again. Getting back into the swing of things at work has been difficult. The days are long and strange with our new Coronavirus world. By now we are all so used it though, I feel like it will be weird to see everyone's faces again whenever that happens.
I was lucky enough to participate in a local flea this summer at Heritage Farms in Peninsula, Ohio. It's my most favorite show of the year and was the only one that didn't get cancelled. I am thankful for their dedication to the arts and offering a safe show during this time. I think being able to do this show kept me sane for the summer because now I feel like I am in such a funk!
Thankfully, I have been getting many art requests from old friends and new! These range from logo designs, dictionary art, and this new found art... "Line Art Buildings" (not really sure if this is the actual name but that's what I'm call it!). This all started with a friend wanting to order an anniversary gift for her husband. She was specifically looking for an interpreted drawing of their first apartment together. She showed me some examples and asked if I thought I could do it. I decided to give it a try and the results were adorable!
She sent me some photos to go off of for reference and I also utilized Street View in Google Maps!
Next, I darkened up the building with some thicker lines. I knew I would be scanning this in for printing so I wanted to make sure the lines were nice and clear. I wanted some print copies because she requested some color highlights and we weren't positive where to put them so I had a few copies to work with. We also added the address in a fun modern font!
The completed result is gorgeous! I love it!
Hey there, I'm Becca, or Rebecca, but not Becky, never Becky, unless you're my family from down south! I'm a simply modern librarian by day and an artist by night. My pursuit is for a simple, happy, healthy, and more fulfilling life! I hope I inspire you to get crafty!
