Montreal Graphic Artist Beautifully Recreates Montreal's Most Iconic Buildings

We already featured Montreal's most iconic symbols and buildings, but we've been outdone. Chris Soueidan, founder of Loogart, an illustration and design company based right here in Montreal, has remade Montreal's most famous landmarks into a crisp and stunning cartoon-ish skyline.

If you want a physical version of this beautiful Montreal creation, you're in luck. Loogart will be collaborating with Monhood.com, the first community-based crowd funding site specific to Montreal. Monhood will be making prints and clothes of Loogart works, with 10% of all sales going to charities in Montreal.  Check out Monhood's line and look forward to Loogart's work available soon!
