I Love Montreal: Saint-Henri & Griffintown

St. Henri and Griffintown can now be added to the I ♥ Montreal image series by LoogArt. The ongoing project, set to feature every borough of Montreal, now includes these two hip and up and coming districts.

LoogArt has already transformed four Montreal districts, recreating the borough into sleek cartoon skylines. Be sure to see previous entries into the series: Cote-des-Neiges, NDG, + Ville Saint Laurent & Old Montreal + Downtown, and the Montreal city-skyline.

LoogArt’s image series is being done in association with Monhood, the world’s first community based crowd funding platform. Mugs and tote bags are being sold by Monhood now, with part of the proceeds going towards charities in Montreal. For more info, images, and ways to purchase these symbols of Montreal, click here.
