Kyle Hobratschk (B.F.A. Art, ’11) loves older buildings with character.
As an under-graduate he began doing drawings and watercolors of homes for the Park Cities Historic & Preservation Society, leading to commissions from real estate agents, homeowners and commercial developers.
Hobratschk was featured in a can’t-miss interactive feature in the Dallas Morning News entitled Corsicana diaries.
Hobratschk on working in Corsicana, via our 2013 MPrint story: “It’s shown me the importance of building community,” he says. “Growing up, I thought of an artist as someone alone in a studio. You don’t imagine working WITH other people until you realize that a lot of things you want to do aren’t possible alone. I couldn’t do Corsicana on my own.”
