I Heart Chicago anatomical map woodblock print by Dark Island City

40.00

This listing is for my version of the classic I heart/love NY image but for Chicago instead, with the background being a Chicago street map. Mounted on a 9"x12" stained birch wood block (1-1/2" deep), it can easily sit on a shelf or hang on the wall.
 

Materials: ink, paper, wood

Pigment-based inks that are said to last a lifetime are used.

The image comes on premium paper.  The DARK ISLAND CITY watermark will not appear on the woodblock. 

Please allow 5-7 days for shipping.

Artist statement:

I turned my fascination with buildings and how they are constructed into a 10-year career in architecture, working my way up in the biz. The only problem was that the love of the craft started to escape me. It makes sense, then, that I would start mucking around in Photoshop with delightful old pieces of cartography and images of iconic buildings. I ended up creating my own art form by taking pieces of the past and marrying them with modern architectural marvels. A street scene with the unmistakable Flatiron building looks right at home on top of an old map of the gridded streets of Lower Manhattan, turns out. Passion: renewed.
