Loving this alphabet series of city maps created by Chicago-based illustrator and designer, Katie Lukes. The maps were created for the â€˜36daysoftypeâ€™ challenge. The artist has an affinity for celebrating everyday objects and scenarios within her work. On Creative Income blog she says this about her work process:
â€œThey almost always start out as a simple sketch. Even before that though, I keep a small moleskin with me at all times and I always jot down random illustration/card ideas in there before I sketch. My illustrations arenâ€™t too complex, so the sketching usually involves working out unique yet simplistic ways to represent my idea. After the sketches are worked out, I sometimes decide to use paint or ink to recreate the sketch, and then I scan everything in to my computer. Depending on the illustration, the amount of work I do digitally from the scan varies.â€
