Former Vina Del Mar gets a facelift

It is always interesting watching buildings change, particularly ones I have illustrated. In 2010, Ottawa Magazine hired me to illustrate a few restaurants across Hintonburg, and Vina Del Mar was one of them. In the past year Vina Del Mar closed up, and the building began getting a facelift. Below is my original illustration, side by side with the building under renos in August 2013. We'll see how it looks when the new place is finished.
