This was created while playing around with my new Stylus. Everyone should have one.
This took maybe... I don't know 3 and a half minutes to do, using corel draw.
But is it ART?

Thanks for finding this...

Very entertaining stuff. Worth looking at if you haven't already, Actually even if you have sure you won't mind it again.

Just a quick sketch up model used to check the proportions when i changed some of the windows and ceiling heights while drawing.
Wanted to make sure i was solving a problem instead of creating another two.
Have since completed 1:50 drawings of the residence.
Looked at Schindlers Proportional Grid and simplified it to 600mm squares used in elevation and plan. Works nicely.
Will use it again.
