The Newbury

In the fall of 2019, illustrator Veronica Lawlor was asked by Tzelan Design to create a series of on-site reportage illustrations of the most beautiful neighborhood in Boston, to be used for a campaign to announce the launch of The Newbury Hotel, a re-imaging of the class Ritz-Carlton. The hotel sits at the entrance to the Boston Public Garden, with a perfect view in every season.

Veronica’s delicate line and colour interpretations of Beacon Hill, Newbury Street, and the Boston Public Garden were turned into a series of postcards, and can be found on all of the hotel collateral, from gift bags to umbrellas. A selection of the illustrations are shown here.

“At times like these,” Veronica says, “I feel so lucky to be a reportage illustrator. My work combines all of the things I love to do – drawing, traveling, meeting people, and spending time in beautiful places.”

The hotel continues to have a relationship with the illustrator, and commission her to create their yearly holiday card.

Empire Studies

These illustrations are a series of editorial illustrations created for a website called, “Empire Studies Magazine.” The editorials are a series of essays and dissertations written by scholars addressing the topics of History, English and Global Studies. Illustrator Margaret Hurst, with her literary background, was a perfect choice for this project.

Titles, from top to bottom: “James Joyce” – an essay about Ireland and the potato famine; “Kingdoms Under Glass” –  taxidermy; “Food Empires” – wheat production in China; “Masks” – female authors using male names; and “Visigoths” –  the architectural stamp left by the Visigoths
