Corktown Map

Finals, guys. I have one class left, and then I'm done with the first half of my senior year. Here's one of my final projects from the semester.

This project was to create a body of work--a main illustration, a supporting illustration, and then a series of patterns (with some alternate color schemes). I chose to base mine around one of my favorite Detroit eating areas (and historical areas), Corktown.

A map of a few Corktown places: Slow's BarBQ, Astro Coffee, the old, no longer present Tiger Stadium, Mudgie's, Green Dot Stables, the old train station, and Mercury Bar.

My supporting illustration with one of my favorite Corktown restaurants, Mudgie's.

Then a version of my map with an alternate color palette. And finally, my patterns, in two different color schemes, featuring lovely Corktown homes and the brick road of Michigan Avenue.

So there you have it. 

And yes, I do accept donations of food from any of these places. Particularly Mudgie's.

P.S. I have a Behance page. If you're into that. Click it!
