Ink, pencil & acrylic of map of Chicago's Southside

This Chicago couple wanted to focus on their strong connections to their southside Bronzeville’s neighborhoods. Each major neighborhood is defined in washes of metallic paint and sections of each neighborhood are distinguished with rotating patterns of dots and lines. The patterns flow out onto Lake Michigan visually connecting it to the neighborhoods on the shore.
