Writer Patty Wetli from DNAInfo stopped by our home/studio and wrote up a great profile on the work we’ve been doing. She was meticulous about the details and both Katie and I felt that she captured us well in outlook and work. This link will take you to the original article and accompanying photos. Here is an excerpt from the piece:
Having developed a taste for entrepreneurship in his consulting role, Thompson decided to gamble that, between his love of residential housing and the portrait drawn for his wife, he had the makings of a successful business.
“All of those things came together at once,” said Lauffenburger, who works in video production.
Since October, Thompson estimates he’s received approximately 50 portrait commissions from homeowners in Chicago — mainly the Wicker Park, Bucktown, Ravenswood and Ukrainian Village neighborhoods — as well as the suburbs. Out-of-staters are even beginning to discover Cape Horn.
