Hmmm, the house on the left looks familiar...I know I've seen it somewhere, but can't quite put my finger on it. Oh yea, I saw it here a while back.
While frantically trying to meet a deadline that came a week early, I was searching google images for some homes to print out and trace, but none were from the right perspective. On to Plan B. Our file cabinet has a ton of old drawings that include homes, so I headed there to look for something to blatantly trace. Still, nothing quite worked. Light bulb moment...I remembered a drawing I did a while back that would be perfect...but the original is nowhere to be found. I check the files on our network...no luck. Just before the light bulb went out, I remembered the post I link to above. Right click, save image as, open with Photoshop, scale it to the correct size and BAM problem solved. Trace away.
I did edit it quite a bit because the home was not the subject of the drawing, but it still saved a ton of drafting time. Yea, that's right, I recycle drawings. Sue me.
Anyway, I finished the drawing this afternoon complete with some masonry work at the corner and a pimped out Cadillac cruising down the road. When I get to work in the morning I'll break out the 64 box of crayons (check that-its a 63 box...we destroy "Indian Red" immediately after purchase because that's not politically correct) and add some color. Yea, that's right, we buy the crayons that have the sharpener built right in. Jealous?
I guess my point is-please recycle, the planet is counting on you...or is it-have your pets spayed or neutered. I'm so confused...where is my beer?
