custom house illustrations

A couple of days ago, Design Sponge featured an incredibly talented etsy artist, who specializes in custom illustrations of houses.  This is close to my heart because less than a year ago I moved into a dreamy little cottage with my husband, and we are so proud of it. I think it would be a perfect subject for illustration.

Grace Bonney of Design Sponge gives us the details in her post

"While I love highly representative drawings, I’m really enjoying these more playful illustrations from artist Rebekka Seale. Rebekka creates these custom house portraits using watercolor and gouache, and each one emphasizes the details that make the house special. I feel like mine would primarily be about a lot of cat heads in windows, but no matter what makes your house feel like a home, this idea would be a wonderful gift, housewarming present or just a nice way to celebrate your home and the family within it. You can check out and order custom house portraits from Rebekka on her Etsy shop right here. Each 8 x 10 portrait is $100 and includes custom lettering, up to two pet silhouettes (yay!) and a CD with a high-res file for printing (Rebekka even includes step-by-step instructions for using the file to create affordable notecards online). You can read more about her process here and here. Thanks to Rebekka’s friend Sarah for the tip!"
