    I am a professional artist.

    Here is a recent illustration I did of the Father Time Clock at 35 E Wacker in Chicago.

    it is on the building known as the Jewelers Building in 1927 when it was built. The clock was donated by the Elgin clock company. I very closely referenced a daytime photo taken on a clear day to make this realistic artwork of the clock on a snowy night.

    Very nice! Do you plan to make reprints of this illustration for sale? What is the size? Do you freelance when someone wants a horological drawing of something?

    Thanks!

    You can buy prints, museum quality guarantee never to fade for a lifetime.

    I do not do commissions. It would be too expensive for most people and when people are paying up front they want many revisions until it is "perfect" for them. It gets real expensive because I would charge by the hour if I even would take on the project. I haven't enjoyed doing commissions.

    Prints here from Fine Art America, who ship worldwide. Just click on a painting and you can customize the size and type of print from archival paper to canvas, metal, and all kinds of things.

    Here's the gallery:
