I wanted to share a few examples of building drawings I've done for customers.
The first example is the Rookery, which I carried out for an architect I met at the Ravenswood art walk. I've posted this elsewhere, but wanted to walk through the panels.
The first is an elevation drawing. This took a while. I started with a tour of the Rookery, which I believe was given by the Chicago Architecture Foundation, and I took tons of photos.

Drawing the Rookery exterior details:
So that's an example of a building drawing that's historic. The Rookery is stunning. It's like Chicago's Taj Mahal, and definitely deserves all the attention. So glad that it was restored to its current glory, I believe in the 80s.
But there's other work that I do, some of which is less prominent on the site. Here's one that I did for developer Evan Oliff, who wanted to show off one of his properties and present an original to his client:
Yet another building drawing example is something like the one below--made for the Skokie County Club. This is a drawing of the exterior of their building. The final version had the names of all the board members in a coin-like medallion over the building.
Finally, one other example of the custom building drawing is this one, done for the great restaurant Daniel in New York. They wanted to have a holiday card with their building facade done and thought that it would have more character if done by hand.
And this is the final version of their card:
So that's just a small sample of the building drawings I do. Please get in touch here and let me know what I can do for you.
