An illustrated map for Wall Street Journal Asia's latest City Walk article for the colourful city of Mumbai. These maps involve quite a bit of research - luckily I'm helped by
the journalists in situ who will answer questions and send images of anything I can't find online -
between us we aim to capture the flavour of the city. The article it illustrates describes a walk
through the city streets and I'm asked to read through the copy, pulling out any places I'd like
to illustrate while highlighting the street names on the route.
An image from the map is used on the second page of the article, I chose to develop the Joy Shoes illustration - somewhere I'd definitely like to shop!
