On Saturday, New Yorkers danced in the streets to the news that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were named the President-elect and Vice President-elect, but this week, NYC's artists are using their pencils and brushes to do their own sort of celebration.

Illustrators from around the five boroughs have posted their vibrant, quick-witted and celebratory art to Instagram and Twitter this week—and it's keeping the partying-spirit alive and well in the city.

Below are 10 amazing pieces of art we love that mark and honor the election results.
