Lowell Illustrator Gary Destramp Loves Sixties Design

Gary Destramp draws the places we all remember.

Gary Destramp grew up in Lowell. Where he frequented city diners, bars and restaurants. Inspired by his Lowell roots, Gary began illustrating his favorite places in his unique style. His retro art evokes the places locals remember. And he puts a bygone vibe on the places we pass every day. See his rendition of Downtown Andover’s Old Town Hall.
