The Working Proof: Jennifer Hill - Manhattan

New print alert! The pattern queen, Jennifer Hill, gave Manhattan some love with this new print that maps out Manhattan's different neighborhoods. Each neighborhood is accented with a pattern that was inspired by neighborhood-centric details, such as the water towers in Tribeca, the view of the sky between the buildings in the financial district, the ornament on the Dakota (where Lennon was shot) for the UWS, and the seating of the Apollo Theater for Harlem. If you look at the print closely, you can see teeny tiny yellow cabs in the streets of the neighborhood borders. This print is an open edition, and each print was signed by Jen. It is an archival giclee print on Fabriano watercolor paper.

15% of each print sold will be donated to Médecins Sans Frontières, for their Haiti efforts. Jen worked for a few weeks for Aid to Artisans in Haiti last year, making some amazing friends and seeing some amazing work by artisans. Médecins Sans Frontières has been a great help to a country with no health care and demolished hospitals, and Jen wants to support their work.

  1. Love the colors and patterns--really cool design work!

  2. This print is gorgeous! All the "hidden" details are so thoughtful, and it makes me really want to make another trip to NY
