How to provide a photo
Send us your photo - either upload with the order or email it to [email protected] Or we can work from an image on a website, just send us the link. Or use Google Street View - Go to Google.com, click on ‘Maps’ and enter the address. Click on the street view of the road or drag the yellow stick man onto the map. Use the pointers to locate your house. When you have a good view, click the link icon, copy the link and send it to us.
What do you draw? We sketch from the perspective in the photograph and won’t include satellite dishes, dustbins etc - let us know anything specific in your enquiry. The illustration is coloured in our painterly watercolour style and digitally printed.
If you've asked for a digital proof, your illustration will be sent to you via email for you to check.

I really liked the outcome of the illustration. I emailed with photos and explanations and someone emailed me back to ask questions to make sure they got it right (however one of the houses was painted as it used to be, not as it is now even though I explained which photos were the most recent etc but this didn't matter too much). The only thing I would improve was some of the photos looked slightly like they had been done on a computer rather than actually hand drawn and painted but it was still lovely. My parents liked it a lot as a present
