Mid Century Modern Homes Collection

Mid Century Modern Homes
These simplified iconic illustrations were created out of my love for mid-century modern architecture and the architects who designed them. Created in collaboration with Tyler Merkel from Mid Century Michigan; who has a wealth of knowledge and expertise about modern homes.

Have Your Mid Century Modern Home Illustrated
In order to fund this project, I can be commissioned to have your mid century modern home or building illustrated. If you are interested please contact me via e-mail –  michael@mkn-design.com
This project is ongoing and will be printed on a letterpress printing press once funds have been established
