Subway Poster


You know how I posted before about my nephew's subway-themed birthday party? Well since J loves, loves, loves the NY subway system my sister asked me to make this poster for him. She provided all the places and subway stops that mean something to him, and I illustrated this map so he can see everything together at one glance. The final size was 18"x24".

Each symbol for each landmark is sooo cute!! I love the elk symbol for church (Is it NLF? I used to go there when I lived in the area). Very special place.

I found a link to this on Marvelouskiddo.com. I think it's wonderful! Should you decide to make these to sell I would absolutely buy one for my 3 year old.
