Dream Hotels for Nylon Magazine
Illustrated advertisement for Dream Hotel Group's Meatpacking hotel, Dream Downtown.

I drew this ad using the digital illustration app Procreate on the iPad. Brendan and I brainstormed the concept with Nylon Magazine's demographic in mind. The ad depicts a romantic fall sunset on the hotel's PH-D Rooftop Lounge.
