Doodle City Maps

Kelli here...as I was thinking about CITIES as the urban landscape, my mind was drawn to city maps. They are each so unique; staked out by the original founders and their vision of what makes pleasing place. I decided to sketch/trace some partial city street maps and add some color and doodle. These are the result. Simply a leisurely way to doodle on an urban theme and explore a city you've never been to. 
Create an outline that resembles a portion of map and then fill in each section with line and color, or use it as the base for a zentangle-like doodle. They take on a pretty stained-glass look. Fun!
