Kevin Cannon Visualizes Lowertown

Once again the Star Tribune hired an ace freelance illustrator, rather than rely on the in-house talent, for an important piece of artwork.

This time it was Kevin Cannon, creating one of his excellent maps of St. Paul's Lowertown neighborhood in honor of the soon-to-open St. Paul Saints ballpark. It graced the cover of today's Variety section and is also being distributed as a poster.

In case you're in the area and may want to visit Lowertown, the Strib has Cannon's map linked up to info on the various restaurants and bars here. Lowertown is one of the parts of the Twin Cities that can make you feel as though you're in a real city and not just a glorified suburb.
