Davenport Hall has just been completed. That’s what’s new in the Halloween House Series. This little house design was inspired by a Hallmark Halloween Pop-up house from the 60s.
What attracts me to this design is the white graphic design on the black background of the house. I just love the contrast and I knew my white gel pen would allow me to mimic this look. Truthfully, I was not nearly as effective as in the Hallmark Pop-Up House, but then I am not a Hallmark artist (which includes such artists as Walt Disney, Norman Rockwell, Saul Steinberg and even Salvador Dali).
Still, I am very happy with this little Halloween House which was made with the same pattern as the Davenport Green and the Lady Davenport Houses. As usual, this house will be sold in October to raise money for Habitat for Humanity. I think that makes about 6 houses I’ve finished for Habitat. That’s not nearly as many as last year. I need to get to work. But part of the challenge is that I try to make every house different because that is what keeps it interesting for me.
What’s next? I don’t have a pattern drawn yet. My plan to develop an easier variation on this house for a free PDF in the library. That will take a little while though.
