Middlebury Magazine art director Pamela Fogg acknowledged that she's admired illustrator Mark Hoffmann's work for quite some time.

Mark's use of rustic line art combined with painterly textured areas resulted in imagery that is folksy yet contemporary. The soft color palette has just enough contrast to keep it interesting while not overpowering the carefully laid out details. Now the question remains. Which city has won your heart?
