Sketch for Beachtown

This is a sketch drawn by hand in ink over a drafted pencil layout that included vanishing points.  The intention of the sketch was to identify and develop architectural cues and general character for the houses in a new beachfront community in Texas.  The existing houses and buildings of Galveston, some of which were Victorian in character, served as a starting point.  I made this drawing with direction from my boss at the time.  I have not yet learned to appreciate Victorian architecture, but I like the sketch for some reason.  This was developed and built by others. I just fumbled through the sketch.
