Custom House Portrait
A 100% hand-drawn illustration of wherever in the world you call home.
No automated digital renderings or photoshop effects here...each house portrait is completely hand-drawn by Nicole, producing a perfectly imperfect illustration in a whimsical style that evokes a children's storybook page. Makes a perfect housewarming gift for new homeowners, a meaningful personalized wedding gift, or a commemorative moving gift to honor a much loved place.
Please leave me a note at checkout with your preferred email address and I will get in touch with you via email to begin the design process. (If you'd rather start the conversation before purchasing, that's cool too! Contact me here.) You'll need to provide me with a high resolution photo of your house and any details you'd like included at the bottom (address, family name; typed or hand-lettered).
The current turnaround time for this piece is 3-4 weeks. Once I've finished the artwork, I'll email you a proof to approve. I will happily make one round of adjustments if there is something you wish to change. Once approved (or after 3 business days if I don’t hear back from you) I will email you the final file if you've purchased a digital download, or send the design to the printer if you've chosen a giclee print.
