Summer Streets NYC 2010

I'm a little late posting but PoleRiders did Summer Streets 2010 with Jillanne and Ariel to promote Jill Annes new store slated to open Octoober 1.

Jill Anne established her company 'JILLANNE' in 1998. The initial cards were hand-painted in a square off 49th Street and 8th Avenue in New York City. Jill Anne has lived in many wonderful places and with her training as a NYC actor, she is able to tap into each community and its needs. Her designs and sayings have a way of touching the heart in a large, yet simple way. Originally, her company started with 6 hand-painted card designs, JILLANNE now has over 800 designs to choose from as well as calendars, and invitations.

JILLANNE's greeting cards have been bought by: The Kennedy Center, The Smithsonian Freer Gallery of Art Shop in DC, The Symphony Store of the Chicago Symphony, The Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco, The Skirball Cultural Center in LA and The Birch Aquarium in La Jolla. JILLANNE has also been commissioned to create designs for New York Presbyterian-Columbia University Medical Center, Nathan's Famous, Road Runner Sports, Specialty Foods Group, Inc., as well as artwork for various musicians and private individuals.

Below is an example of Jill Anne's artwork available on T-shirts, cards etc. The model pictured is Ariel. Join PoleRiders for the Grand opening of the store on October 1!
