About the illustration
Your Illustration will be hand drawn black & white sketch of the property, not a computer generated image, so we can add/remove things you don’t want eg: cars or lamp posts, and we won't include dustbins, satellite dishes etc. We will sketch the view from the photograph (ie the same perspective). It’s a simplified drawing of the venue but if you want more detail we also offer a ‘Detailed portrait’ version. The drawing will be portrait or landscape that best suits the image. Although the venue will be in black & white we colour the sky duck-egg blue, the grass a sage green and paths stone or grey. Bright paintwork such as front doors or painted concrete will also coloured.
If you've asked for a digital proof, your illustration will be emailed for you to check.

We were so pleased with the framed picture of our daughter’s university, great quality and personalised with her name and degree . Excellent customer service from Tom and James too.
Everything we asked for ... and more. Could not be more pleased with the wonderful illustration of our granddaughters’ University.
Thank you. Both of our children were thrilled with the picture of their universities displaying the date of their graduation and their degrees. Your service was so fast especially when we sent you a photo of the Uni of York which you changed into a drawing.
So pleased with the service, delivery and product, it’s something different to celebrate my sons graduation
