Chicago River – North Branch

Randal did this pen and ink line illustration of the North Branch of the Chicago River for a project funded by the Open Lands nature conservancy project. The illustration was used in a report designed to highlight how the Chicago River could be developed and turned into an amenity for Chicago, rather than the eyesore that it was back the 1980’s. In this illustration, a walkway bridge was highlighted. The City of Chicago has implemented many of the recommendations and ideas put forth in the Open Lands report.

This illustration and a number of others in this series were commissioned by and in collaboration with Jonathan Boyer, a Chicago area architect.
