Watery Maps

I've been making more maps lately with wide stretches of watercolor and interconnected islands. I like the watery, organic texture of the watercolor and then the precise road lines. I started with small card-size drawings:


and a huge 18"x24" drawing that was in the City Hall show last month:

Recently a lot of people have been sending me links for the City Tracking project which uses Open Street Map data in artistic/informative ways. The Watercolor style is particularly similar to what I've been making lately, so I thought I'd post it below. I recommend checking out the project, it's very cool!
