These amazing pictures are created in fine ink by artist David Oberdorf who has specialised in house portraits for the past 16 years. My daughter and mother-in-law discovered him at the Paddington Markets in Sydney last weekend and it got me thinking.
So, are you thinking what I'm thinking ...?
I think you are! You see, I thought, as I cannot recycle the whole of my house, what better way to keep its memory alive (apart from its bits being in someone else's home) than in a picture.
David's drawings are so detailed and intricate they could well be mistaken for photographs, which is interesting as he was a press photographer for 22 years.
David is going to come over to our place, take some photos, do a bit of creative aboreal work and then get to work on drawing our little brick house - which isn't anywhere near as grand as some of the houses he has drawn previously - before it gets pulled apart.
I can't wait to see the result and it may even end up somewhere on this blog.
Note: As you can see I've had a bit of a play around this weekend with my blog's design as Blogger has come up with some new template designs. I will change the header image but have yet to decide to what exactly.
Oh, how I love a work in progress!
