Julia Breckenreid‘s illustrations (editorial, childrens and other) are super cute. Love the “light” in the ones above.

She’s also got a blog.

Featured on Inhabitat

(From June 9) An elevated park in the sky built on top of the skeleton of an old rail system? It may have sounded impossible only five years ago, but today, the eagerly awaited High Line elevated urban park officially opens for thousands of New Yorkers looking to escape the hubbub of the city below!

Official link here and more here.
