This illustration was inspired by my first home (New York) and my time spent studying art in NYC. I wanted to paint a bookstore I'd love to visit and get lost in a book in. I picked my favorite neighborhood in the city, Greenwich Village, and heavily referenced random storefronts for inspiration. A great gift for book lovers.
