alphabet city

I apologize for my extended absences from this blog... I don't seem to be cut out for the internet world.

I wanted to post some pieces I did a few weeks ago for my friend Shannon Jager's fantastic new magazine Alphabet City. The pieces I did were for an article about the connection a girl makes to the city of Toronto, and being a Toronto girl myself, I felt that I entirely understood that connection.

Toronto is a like a friend you really like to have coffee with, a city that quietly hums with creative talent, a mix of humble gem-like neighbourhoods.
I chose my personal icons of Toronto for the illustrations: the streetcar, the Victorian homes, the flatiron building, the skyline.

Alphabet City will be going to print soon, but for now you check it out online, it is absolutely amazing.
