First Time Homeowner


This is an illustration for Baltimore City Paper about the joys of buying a house(for the first time) in Hampden. These joys include painting while your roommate is passed out on the couch.

I also thought this would make a good illo for Illustration Friday this week as the word is "Undone." I tried something I usually don't do and left the background white to make it look like the wall is not done being painted.

Great conceptual illustration. I'm a big fan of the "undone" look in illustration, when done intentionally like this. Nice work!

Very strong graphic image. At first glance, it looks like the house has depth, but after closer examination the house seems to be on a flat canvas. I like the duality.
