Cover Art: Crain’s 2014 Book of Lists

Nancy Pochis Bank Art Studio was commissioned by Crain’s Chicago Business to illustrate the cover of their annual Book of Lists on a giant chalkboard. Nancy hand-lettered and illustrated a tribute to Chicago’s public art and the contents of the magazine onto a custom made chalkboard by Marne Provost.
