Commission a beautiful drawing of someone’s home based on a photo provided by you, hand drawn by artists working in North Devon. Choose either black&white, or colour (where the house is still left black&white but we add block colour for the sky, grass, road etc).
Every illustration can be further personalised with a printed message. Choose from 3 typefaces (script, handwritten or a modern sans-serif). Your text will be printed on 2 lines, the top line being a slightly larger size eg: The Orchards / 15 Lane End, Bideford, Devon.
How to provide a photo
Send us your photo - either upload with the order or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or we can work from an image on a website, just send us the link. Or use Google Street View - Go to Google.com, click on ‘Maps’ and enter the address. Click on the street view of the road or drag the yellow stick man onto the map. Use the pointers to locate your house. When you have a good view, click the link icon, copy the link and send it to us.
About the illustration
Your Illustration will be hand drawn black & white drawing of the property, not a computer generated image, so we can add or remove things you don’t want eg: cars, lamp posts, and we won't include elements such as dustbins, satellite dishes etc. We will sketch the view from the photograph (ie the same perspective). We include textures such as brick and roof tiles and some of the surrounding landscape. The drawing will be portrait or landscape that best suits the image.
Handrawn illustration coloured on the computer for lovely solid lines and digitally printed in a graphic, contemporary style with offset block colours on 200gsm acid free, fine grain artists paper. We mount all the illustrations in a high quality bevelled white mount. Contemporary wooden frames available - Small £24, Large £26, Extra Large £36. Styles available - bevelled black (2cm wide), bevelled white (2cm), oak (2.5cm), painted/limed white where you can still see some wood grain (3cm). Supplied with mdf backing board, integrated hanging hook, and Pilkington glass except extra large frames which are glazed with high grade Quinn perspex for safe delivery (completely clear and UV stabilised so it won't discolour over time). Please note extra large black and white frames have a shabby-chic feel with a distressed paint effect, showing the grain beneath (3cm wide). See thumbnails for images of all frames.
