Like a pop up tent I can set up camp anywhere, but here’s my home base:

Anonymous asked: I'm actually addicted to your blog! Your houses are so cool & really like your style! Do you have a shop like etsy? Would love to buy something with houses on it! Keep it up Draw a City!
Thank you ^_^ That’s very kind :) Yes I do have an Etsy where you can buy a print of any house you like, and if you can’t decide on one, you can get an A3 print of 25 :D >Etsy<
uncacti asked: Do you have a favourite house you've drawn? Also what are you gonna do once one year is up? x
Hey :D Yes, I think Plant Sale house is my favourite (just don’t tell the other houses I said that!) The end is getting pretty close now and though its kinda relieving, it makes me feel quite sad. I guess I’ll just keep going(!) but not till my degree finishes in May and maaaaybe not everyday :P
voicein-myhead asked: I'm kinda curious (sorry if you may have received such questions before cus I haven't stalked all of your posts yet), but what was your purpose of drawing a house for each day?
Hey :D Sorry for the late response x( To most people I’d just say ‘Yeah, no reason really, it’s just for the lolz’ but the truth is I was having a tough time… With studying architecture you do a ‘year out’ to find work in an architecture firm. I was getting constantly ignored and rejected by firms and this really destroyed the little confidence I had in myself and my work. I hit rock bottom when I finally got an interview and was basically told I was too neat and not arty so wouldn’t get the job. I couldn’t see what was so wrong with being neat, but hearing I wasn’t ‘arty’ hurt. I felt like I needed to do something which gave me a sense of achievement, something I could do to prove to myself I wasn’t as bad as people were making me feel. So I decided to draw a house, everyday, for a year. The things that have come out of this project are great. The support from followers is unreal - it means so much hearing that people like my work. Though I’ve fallen behind lately due to being back at uni, it’s not so much a house a day now but more 365 houses in 365 days. 15th of March is when I started so I hope to have drawn all 365 houses by then :)
