CF Ivy is the second sketch print of Wrigley I created in a series of ballpark prints that focus on the most famous and memorable aspects of the ballparks around the country. I love this form of minimalism in that you need to be a fan of the team to really understand what you’re looking at. In this case, any Cubs fan would know the ivy and the distance marker on the brick wall in center field of the ballpark.
