I love suburban houses. Love them. I’m not totally sure why. Maybe they make me feel like a kid again. Safe, playing in a back yard, coming in for lunch. I haven’t lived in a house with a backyard since I was a kid, so that must be it. I especially love homes built right after WW2. My grandmother and great-grandmother both lived in houses from this time period and any time I even drive past one I imagine what the interior looks, and smells, like. These are a few sketches from this past Summer. I was slightly obsessed with these houses and spent hours driving around, taking snap shots and then drawing them in pen. Not sure where these are going, but I don’t think I’m done with them yet.
