Sketch for the Christmas House

A hand drawn sketch for the Christmas House in Rancho CucamongaThe ‘Christmas House’ was down the street from my sign shop in Rancho Cucamonga. The sign was in need of repair so I asked the owners if I could do a sketch and bid on a new sign. This was pre-computers when all of my drawings were done with pen and markers.

I usually did a pen sketch to make sure I was on the same page with the client and also tried to have a proposal ready. If all was copacetic, I would furnish a colored drawing and take my deposit to start the work. I did not get this job, but I always liked the sketch.
