I have a fond
admiration obsession for maps. Especially vintage ones. I also LOVE our quaint downtown with all of the amazing restaurants and green space. I really wanted to capture all of that in an artistic way. So I ventured the 2.1 miles to downtown and sat in the coffee shop and sketched out a map of “the square” and its restaurants. I researched each restaurant’s logo and tried to capture the detail of each one. A little watercolor and some outlines were added once it was all sketched out. I must admit… I selfishly did this commission for myself, but after posting it on Facebook, I was flattered by how much people wanted it! Keep your eye out, they’ll be coming to the market very soon!
And just between you and me?
If I had to pick one restaurant out of the bunch?
I couldn’t. Because they are ALL A-MAZING. Just ask Alton Brown.
