I figured it is fitting to show the Art Institute first today, since it is free to Illinois residents on Thursday evenings.
First set of postcard-sized illustrations from the booklet that my dad recently gave to me: Sports! Spring training just started, so I figured I’d start with Wrigley and Comiskey, and throw Soldier Field in there for good measure.
More to come…
Last week my dad gave to me a picture booklet that he found in the attic of a house of his almost 30 years ago. It included 18 postcard-sized illustrations on a continuous strip of paper (9 on front, 9 on the back), and these images below are of the front and back covers of the booklet as well as the text inside.
I’ll share more scans of the inside as the week goes on. Enjoy!
A design I created is now up for pre-sale on the website Cotton Bureau. It will go to print if there are (at least) 25 orders for the shirt over the next 14 days, so please pass share with anyone that might be interested!
And of course my design has a Chicago connection: these Art Deco owls are based on the ones in the lobby of the Chicago Board of Trade building.
