All prints are hand done in Chicago by artist Phil Thompson of Cape Horn Illustration.
The "two-flat" is a sturdy residential style that exploded in Chicago in the early 1900s and took variations in brick and greystone. Many of Chicago's neighborhoods feature street after street of these stately, castle-like homes. They once were a way for families to enjoy close, multi-generational living quarters; now, many of the buildings are split between two families, often one owning and one renting. This piece is printed on bright white, which sharpens the contrast with the black line work and textures. Made for the fan of Chicago neighborhood architecture.
