location

 Location, Location, Location really does say so much especially when it comes to coveted real estate and then of course,  to coveted art.  Ahem. Well, not just any art but feast your eyes on the illustration.
I was so excited to see the art take the page instead of being relegated to one tiny corner.
 
My latest illustration, in the latest issue of Sheridan Road Magazine.  Sometimes just a line or a shoreline can say it all.  For this particular work, I thought keeping it simple in shades of watery blue worked best to convey the "North Shore" from "Lake Bluff" on down the line to "Evanston."

Does your address need to be illustrated to show off it's location, location location.  Let me know your whereabouts?  Did you know that I also illustrate on location for parties or events?

I love your map, my geography of America is a little sketchy at the best of times.

How fun to see the North Shore where I spent two of my most favorite years in business school - your art brings it all back to me! Thinking I must procrastinate a little more and read Sheridan Magazine.

I adore an illustrated map and yours is especially charming. PVE, this gives me an idea for something I would like to commission you to do ahead of our Anniversary this year. I'll send you an email with more details! XO

Just love it, can't explain why. The highest compliment, I think. No brain analysis, the eye
just delights upon seeing. (My old stomping
ground as well. Brought back memories of
grad school and making out near Bahai Temple
in high school. Not sure why THAT FACT flew
into my mind when I saw your drawing.)

Wow, full page. That's great! And no, I did not know that you also work at parties. You do it all don't you :)

Acquired Objects said...

Your map is wonderful and congratulations for having it in print. My location is nothing but woods and that would get boring painting.
