On the road in Boston, Massachusetts

Boston, MA

I'm in Boston this week so I find it fitting to mention a new book that's coming out which takes place at Harvard University in Massachusetts. It's called "The League of Freaks and the Secret Key" by Dr. Alberto Hazan. I illustrated the book cover for Alberto as well as designing the official League of Freaks website. Check it out and let me know what you think!

Also in Massachusetts is the Brigham and Women's Hospital. I worked on a project for the hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in March. I hand-painted two book carts to look like dogs, Macie and Shadow. The carts are wheeled from room to room to cheer up patients.
And finally, my travels in Boston brought me to the Liberty Hotel.
Formerly the Charles Street Jail, the Liberty Hotel is super swanky, architecturally stunning and yes, there are still bars on the windows! (Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures but there's plenty to see on their website so click on the link above).
I had dinner and drinks with some friends at the hotel restaurant, Clink. The hotel also houses the Liberty Bar, Scampo and Alibi. The food, drinks, and atmosphere were all fantastic. If you're in downtown Boston it is definitely a location you must visit.
