Here is one of my favorite drawings by the illustrators, Maud and Miska Petersham, showing a famous house in Holland with the crow's step gable. I can't seem to make the picture larger, but you get the idea. It's from Tales Told in Holland, a book we had when I was a child AND my brother recently found it at our house and gave to me.
Still working on the Tudor house, it's not too far from being done. I think it looks really cool. I have another Amsterdam house in the works which is also almost completed.
My plan is to continue to make houses throughout the year - whatever strikes my fancy. I also want to make some dioramas because I think that allows a lot of creativity as well.
