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.

Canson Pad Illustration

For over 450 years, Canson Paper has been one of the leading fine arts papers in the world. So illustrator Veronica Lawlor was thrilled when she was asked to create cover illustrations for their new Artist Series line.

“I enjoyed the challenge of working in different mediums to find the right feeling for the various paper types. Plus I had the opportunity to work with all of them!”

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
