Milwaukee, Wisconsin, US
The city of Chicago has a dark history of disaster and death, from devastating fires (Iroquois Theatre), horrific accidents (S.S. Eastland) and dreadful events (St. Valentine's Day Massacre). Let my Edward Gorey-inspired map help guide you to 14 sites known among ghost hunters and paranormal investigators to be the most active. Even if you don't believe in such otherworldly phenomenon, perhaps my map will lure you into discovering something new about Chicago's spellbinding history.

RECENTLY ADDED TRAVEL ILLUSTRATIONS
I wanted to create a painterly style of space map unlike a lot of the darker imagery we're used to seeing associated with space. I was also inspired by trail guides and maps with keys that showcase important information about a destination. So I decided to make a key showing which planets are hot and which are cold (and of course, which one is just right!).
As a former zookeeper and an avid stargazer, the theme for my map was an easy choice: animals in the night sky! I only had "space" to fit my favorites (there are over 40 different animal-named constellations). I hope my map will help others better recognize these star shapes when they stare into the cosmos...I feel I know them much better now myself!
There is one magic day during summer, when colorful cuddlies and squeeshy shiny balls are falling down from the sky, and kids are reaching for them. This is the universe as seen through the toddler’s eyes who watches the show and gives names to all planets he sees. I was inspired by 2 years old nephew - we’ve been watching starry sky and falling perseids together :-)
