Armitage Apartments by Dana Swasko. Media: Charcoal.

This was for a family that had received a drawing of mine through their realtor upon closing. I work with local realtors to draw portraits of the house they are selling for a closing gift. The husband liked it so much he had me to their original home in Chicago as a gift for his wife. It was special because it was from the house their young son grew up in. The Lincoln Park neighborhood is unique and vintage architecture-wise, and this old apartment was no exception. This was a fun work because I had to remove people, cars and unnecessary signs from the original photo to keep focus on the building itself.
