A Map of Washington Square Park’s Natural Inhabitants and Visitors. This map of the park at the heart of Greenwich Village will be offered as a folded-up insert in the fall issue of the NYU Alumni Magazine. The 13 natural creatures and 1 homo sapiens/New York University undergraduate (respectfully modeled on Miss Dakota Fanning) are identified on a long, hand-lettered KEY which will be featured on the back.

I’m hoping that interested people will be able to buy the magazine online, and that it won’t be limited to alumni-subscribers. When and if I have that information, I’ll turn the image into a link-through to the magazine website.

In the meantime, please enjoy this urban menagerie!

All creatures were made with a .3mm Sanford drafting pencil with a hard-H graphite lead and gouache paint applied with a small Winsor and Newton sable brush. The map-background is Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils in sap green and green olive for darkening and adding some density.

How do I become a full time illustrator? →

frenden:

A young, aspiring illustrator recently asked me how to become a full time freelancer. The answer is murky at best and provides no quick route to a stable career, but I’d like to think I learned a thing or two over the last fifteen-ish years that’s worth repeating.

I was lucky in that I started a…
