Chicago Based Start-up Commemorates the World Series Champion Chicago Cubs with Unique Mixed Media Design CHICAGO (December 5, 2016) – History Trees, a Chicago based digital art company, that creates graphic designs known as history trees for sports teams and other areas of interest. With the Chicago Cubs bringing the Commissioners Trophy back to Chicago, History Trees is helping fans celebrate with a one of a kind design and a chance to meet the artist.
“I can’t wait to History Trees launch the World Series Champion Chicago Cubs Tree." says Pat Chinander, owner of Love From Chicago, Accent Chicago and other Chicagoland gift, sports and specialty retailer doing business with History Trees since a Summer 2010 Trade Show at Chicago’s Merchandise Mart.
A History Tree is a completely original piece of art that captures an entire history on one page. The viewer can think of it as a one-page encyclopedia of a particular topic. The content of each History Tree is uniquely arranged in chronological order and sized by significance. By combining names, images, and sketches, a History Tree is a dramatic piece of artwork that is the ideal conversation piece.
“History Trees provide history enthusiast with an opportunity to turn history into pieces of art that make great conversation starters,” says artist Bruce Burton. “I’m honored to provide my passion for art to provide information to celebrate the history of monumental times.”
