Custom Home Illustration
In March 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown first started and we all were sequestered in our homes, I started thinking about how a home can mean a lot of things. Home means safety and security; it means escape from the world, relaxation, and rest. Each home is different and unique; and at home, we can truly be ourselves.
I create custom home art postcards for Alessandra Toscano, a Realtor in San Jose, California, and a close friend of mine for 25+ years. She gets them printed as housewarming gifts for her clients to give to their friends and family notifying them of their new address. Her clients get great joy from sending and receiving them, which in turn gives me joy. And it gave me something meaningful to do while I was alone, working in my studio apt in NYC.
