I love illustrating maps every now and then. The challenge is to get the map correct (more or less) while adding nice little details to make it fun. For this map of West Philadelphia I first had to get a feel for this place I have never been to. Luckily there’s Google street view to explore a place you’ve never been to. You can find this map in EXEL magazine (published by Drexel University). Thanks to Pentagram Austin for bringing me in on this, Art Direction by Stu Taylor.
