SOHO HOUSE CHICAGO NYE16 - ROUTE 66

After Soho House Chicago sent me, and 10 other artists on a tour bus down Route 66, I created a map to reflect our adventure and serve as a guide for the activities at the subsequent NYE party.

 Maps found at gas stations in the late 1950's served as both guides for tourists and local advertisements.  Using mix and match vintage clipart and some intentionally poor composition, I was able to capture the authenticity and kitsch of the era as well as the spirit of our trip.  You can follow our trip down Route 66, starting with the Gemini Giant, or read about our adventure in the words of Seth Putnam, fellow R66 traveler and editor of  Collective Quarterly .

 I created another vintage clip art collage on the front of the map to serve as a schedule for the actual NYE party.  This side of the map also displayed the cocktail menu, as well as a series of tributes to our adventure in the form of inside jokes turned "local advertisements".

 The neon signs we saw over the course of our trip inspired the cocktail menu, and some  installations  I did for the event as well.
