My Night in Nine is a series where we ask some of our friends, collaborators and all-around creatives to show us what a night at The Drake looks like for them in nine photos.
Illustrator and multimedia artist Maxine McCrann delights in the specific. Inspired by her passion for community, food, wine, and all things bold and colourful, her work offers poetic depictions of life in Toronto, Detroit and New York City. We asked McCrann to grab her art supplies and spend a night at The Drake Hotel; instead of the standard photo representation, she captured her night in nine … illustrations. The result: a series of wild and confident bursts of colour that spring joyously from the pages of a hotel notepad.
