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.

There are so many great creative things happening in Detroit right now! The food scene is incredible and I had the pleasure of visiting a couple of these places this summer while I was there. Soul food, donuts, sandwiches and pizza...Detroit has it all for the vegan traveler!
I visited Detroit this summer for the ICON 10 illustration conference and had a chance to learn about SO many cool and unique places in the visual art community. This map doesn't include everything by a long shot, but is some of the "greatest hits" of my trip -- places that are truly unique to Detroit and make it a very special place for art.
A trip to ICON in Detroit this past July had me look a little deeper at its music history – particularly the soul music that arose in the 1960’s. These are just some of the badass women who's songs that still resonate today – as well as some of the places that gave birth to a vibrant music industry.
I created a Spotify playlist of the artists included in my map, listen here: http://ow.ly/eGhV30lyq0b
I had the opportunity to visit Detroit in July for the ICON10 Illustration conference. One of the events was a tour of many of the public art spots in the city, and many local artists/activists spoke at the conference. I was blown away by the amount of grassroots engagement in art and placemaking, helping transform the city in a positive way. This map includes the Instagram handles for many of the artists and institutions I had the pleasure of learning about. I hope you'll give them a follow and learn more.
