let me draw your house {or car}

07.29.2013

So, I’m doing it! Drawing houses and cars for people… and I love it! I thought I’d share my first two commissions with you – one house in LA, and one very old/badass car.

This house is the rental home of Emily Henderson {HGTV host, and super stylist in LA}. She kinda hates it, and is in the process of looking for a house to buy and make her own. However, lots of amazing things have happened to her, and her husband Brian {and soon to be baby boy!} in this house, so she wanted to have a little something to remember it by. She told me she loves aqua, and hot pink… but hates the actual pink of the house. So this is what I made. Thankfully she loved it – and I had a ridiculous amount of fun making it for her!

Ok. Up  next. My first commission for a complete stranger. Jenn contacted me via my Etsy shop, Cross Street, and asked if I’d draw a 1970ish Satellite Sebring for her partner Dee’s birthday. She sent me this starting photo, asked for aqua and hot pink {hm… I’m sensing a trend here!}, and requested a bit of embroidery:

I loved working on this, and I’m happy to report that Dee loved it too… note the tiny “DEE”  license plate : )

I’m just about to start on a piece for the lovely and talented Autumn Reeser {if you watched The OC, or Hawaii 5-0, or Last Resort you might have a bit of a fan-girl moment like I did!}. Over the last year and half {after I got over the fact that I was tweeting back and forth with The OC’s “Taylor Townsend”} Autumn and I have become really wonderful friends… so when she asked me to draw/paint her family’s cabin for her new baby boy’s nursery, I was beyond honored. When it’s finished I’ll post it here!
