My process always starts with the client's brief
The client in this case was Convene Magazine and they had requested an illustrated map of Austin. I read through all of the spec and started sketching. After 3 sketches and about 6 hours the client was happy for me to go to the detailed design phase.
Detailed design on these projects can be quite tough as there is a certain level of accuracy I like to achieve with the building likenesses, but I was really happy with the finished product.
Let me know what you guys think? Especially if you've ever been to Austin!
