House No. 31: A-Frame House
ink, colored pencil, and watercolor on paper, digital layout
8.5 in. x 11 in.
Today's house is the first in an alphabet series that I am making for the month of February, with a few dalliances into other houses along the way.
You see, I have had a craving lately for early 20th century educational posters. (Some people want chocolate or chips, and I get a hankering for era-specific print design.) I have also just wanted to draw. This satisfies both needs. It's like the salty and the sweet in one month-long 365 sub-project.
If you love architecture, world culture, and domestic dwelling trivia, then this is the month for you. Stay tuned for the tricky letters for potential new vocabulary for you logophiles, verbivores, and crossword puzzle-players out there. And if you are into educational ephemera, we can talk. There will be a little something for everyone. What can I say? I like to mix it up for ya.
