Technique: These three drawings are on one 8 and a half by 11 inch page (A4 size). The two floor plans are drawn in very small scale 1/16" = one foot, and the shaded front elevation slightly larger scale. I use various Faber-Castell pencils, 6H up to HB. This page exists exactly as you see it in one of my many binders filled with sketches, but with hand-lettering of course, not typeset. I use GIMP software to clean up the file, "tweak" the color a bit, and add labels, titles, and dimensions, that's all. This page "as-is" may serve as a model for a book page (hint hint.) The intention is to communicate the maximum information and an emotional response in a potential viewer, as related to a particular home plan idea. These sketches can easily be developed into a full set of plans for a luxury home in the U.S. or other markets.

Let's face it. I have about as many favorite artists as I do authors. So I couldn't possibly list them all. That said, when I answer that question I always answer Thomas Kinkade when in reference to "art" and Stephan Pöppelmann when referring to "concept art." Ever since I saw my first Thomas Kinkade, I've wanted to LIVE in his paintings. All the light and beauty make the setting so peaceful. Add the fact he collaborated with Disney and yep, that cements my love of his ar
That book would make a fine addition to my collection!
