Louisville Panorama

A hand-drawn illustration of our favorite Louisville neighborhood.

A few years ago, while we were home in Kentucky, we took a panoramic photo of a neighborhood in Louisville called The Highlands. We then decided to turn this panorama into an illustration as a Christmas gift for Allen’s sister. We did the initial line work by hand but colored the illustration in Photoshop, splitting the painting work between the two of us and eventually merging our files. We tried to add a fair amount of detail in the limited time we had, particularly on the window reflections, while still maintaining a fairly flat, comic-like illustration style.
