House illustrations on Joel's website
Joel does a great job of imbuing each of his buildings with personality. His style is highly detailed, but retains a sketch-like essence. The drawings are mainly done in pen and ink, and most of them are in black and white. I really like these drawings, as they present the homes and their immediate surroundings without any embellishment. They function very well as a series, but are fascinating as individuals. Joel also creates colour illustrations of shop windows and the items displayed therein.
In addition to these illustrations, Joel also has a collection of uncategorized work available on his website at www.house-illustrations.com. These works range from abstract paintings to small pen-and-ink still life studies. Joel’s style of drawing shows through even in these experimental works.
