Great Good Places

Bars, Taverns, and Dives New Yorkers Love

Brooklyn-based artist John Tebeau began making artwork celebrating favorite drinking establishments of New York City, calling his series Great Good Places, which led to a book called Bars, Taverns, and Dives New Yorkers Love to be published by Rizzoli in March 2018.

John draws the bars in a loose, cartoony style in ink then colorizes them in Photoshop. Some of those files were made into posters by hand in Brooklyn, silkscreen style, the way T-shirts are made. Others were printed via the digital giclée method, and all were done on heavyweight, acid-free, archival paper, all signed and numbered in limited editions.

Prints and the original ink drawings are for sale, framed or not, on John's website:
