A beautiful hand drawn illustration of your home, drawn from your favourite photo. A perfect birthday or anniversry present for someone special.
We will draw your home by hand as a black and white line drawing in our Derbyshire dales studio. We then add the colour of your choice and your text digitally and can send you a proof to approve before sending the finished illustration to you.
Our architectural style illustrations have pale highlighted shadows and a bold graphic sky in a choice of shades.We show a range of subtle coloured backgrounds, but if you have another colour in mind, please let us know.
You can choose the wording to be added, for example starting with the name or address of your home, and including details of who calls it home, and from when. You can also included your family pets, or any other important information, such as 'our first home together'.
After you place your order, you will need to send us your photograph(s). Upload them via the notonthehighstreet.com website by going to My Orders and submitting an enquiry. If we don't receive them within 24 hours we'll send you an email to remind you. Please note that delays in sending the photograph(s) will lengthen the timescale in which we can produce your illustration. If you don't have a photo, we can also find your chosen house online if you give us the address, or you can send us a weblink of an online photo you's like us to use.
If you especially want any details or features including, such as people or pets, please let us know.
We'll draw an articstic interpretation of your chosen building, missing out things that take away from the aesthetics of the drawing such as drain pipes. If you especially want any details or features including, please let us know.
