After the overwhelming response of my last Bucktown and Wicker Park map, I have created another Bucktown and Wicker Park print to sell. It really goes to show you that some Chicagoans LOVE their neighborhood. It was enough for me to sell the 100 prints I had in less than a day. Afterward, though, I got many requests from people still looking to purchase one…and that was just the people that emailed me. It was inspiring to see just how attached people are to that area of the city. I guess I always knew people felt very connected to their neighborhoods. Except here, I was seeing it firsthand. Even after over a decade of living in Chicago, there is still plenty of room to learn more about the city. So, without further ado, here is the print:
This time around, I focused more on the main intersection of Damen, Milwaukee and North Avenue. While I did use some of the imagery of the previous print to keep a little continuity, I still illustrated many new buildings and icons related to Bucktown and Wicker Park. Also, I am offering this print in two editions. The above “Blue” edition will be an open edition. As long as demand is still there, I can continue print this version for years to come. I am also selling a “Burgundy” edition:
The artwork is the same except the blue has been changed to burgundy. This version will be limited to 250 prints and be signed and numbered. If you are interested in getting one of these prints, just go to my online store.
