New Orleans Vernacular: First Look

I've been drawing New Orleans for the past few weeks, getting a sense for the language of her architecture. I don't know of another city with such definitive TYPES.
I'm just drawing what I see, what I like, then arranging the fable streetscape. Looks like I need more Garden District houses, maybe more French Quarter too. I'll be sure to pick some up when I go there in a few weeks.

Hi, I had a friend point me to your blog this morning because I live in New Orleans. I love these drawings! I have only been here for a year and a half, but I'm simply in love with New Orleans architecture. These capture it so well. I'm excited to read more of your blog.
