I had such a fun time creating whimsical artwork for two of my favorite cities - Jersey City & New York this fall, I was super happy to get the opportunity to recently create another skyline illustration.
During the Jersey City studio tour I met a fellow picture book artist named Patricia Keeler, who offered to display some of my work during her Open House this coming weekend. Since Patricia's studio is in Hoboken, I thought it would be the perfect time to continue creating artwork for a city I've always loved: Hoboken, NJ.
Just like in my past 'Whimsy City Illustrations', every building and character has some sort of significance to my life.
|This brownstone building is a rendition of one of my favorite homes on Hudson Street. I pass it every time I walk down that street to teach private art lessons.|
|Nothing says 'Hoboken' to me more than the clock tower, and my husband and I stayed at the W hotel after our engagement in 2012. It is a beautiful hotel and adds so much to the skyline.|
|My favorite new store in Hoboken is 'Little City Books'. They offer books for kids and adults and sell lots of cute things like cards and gifts as well.|
|Zinnie holding a cake from Carlo's Bakery - it is based on the one my husband ordered when I turned 30.|
'Hoboken' and character art prints will be available for sale at Patricia's Open House on November 5. The 4" x 6" size is only $10 for a framed print- so stock up for Christmas!
Additionally, you can purchase the art online here.
