Drawings for Historic Brattonsville

For my day job, I'm privileged to work with a fantastic group of historians, scientists, educators and others in preserving and interpreting the cultural & natural heritage of our region at the Culture & Heritage Museums. One of our museums is Historic Brattonsville, a living history farm that brilliantly displays lifestyles in the Carolina backcountry during the 18th and 19th centuries. Drawing on the wealth of visual inspiration at the site, and from the print media of the period, I'm having a lot of fun working on design for this farm. Here are a few recent illustrations.
