The Back of My House

This is the back of my house as seen from the back of my back yard. (back! BACK! BACK!) It was drawn on yet another rainy type day. I added the tone on a sunny day. The house is a typical Roxborough twin built in 1903. The third floor houses my studio. It can be detached and jettisoned in case of emergency. This drawing was done with a fountain pen, brush pen, china marker (to give the roof a little texture) and a color pencil.

Art, I have been missing Philly lately, and have been thinking about BBQ's in your back yard. Since I am unable to fly out, this is the next best thing! I am just CRAZY about your neighborhood drawings! I recognize all of those locations. These are really gorgeous! I'm envious! Keep going!

Art, I'm really digging this series of drawings. That "wall" is just plain sick. The thing I've always marveled about your stuff is that you can really feel the textures of the composition. Everything is so very distinct and yet almost seamless at the same time. That totally blows me away. I'm looking forward to seeing what else you post.
