This is another one of those pieces that seem to blur the line between fine art and illustration. It is line that is not very clear for me.

I wasn't trying to do a "New York" theme nor was I trying to make some sort of library reference and yet, using the drawer pull under the lion, it still looked like an old card catalog drawer. I think part of the appeal of these Foundlings is how much room there is for people to see what they want to see in them.
