Mack and Ro Illustrations - Car Prints

A few years ago, I was lucky enough to be placed next to Jen from Mack and Ro at the Pop Shop Market in Fairfield, Connecticut.  I immediately fell in love with her work and have loved following her creative journey.  Jen creates beautiful illustrations of preppy vehicles like Jeep and Land Rover.  These prints would make a perfect gift for him, whether that be a young boy, boyfriend or husband.  Have a friend with a coastal home?  Be sure to check out her coastal maps.  She features Fairfield, Boston, Nantucket, Block Island, and Portland ME.  My real favorite are the custom portraits.  This is one of my prized possessions and also makes a great gift for grandparents.
