Being the NPR nerd (enthusiast) that I am, I thought it would be a fun challenge to develop a concept for This American Life. I wanted the illustration to capture little pieces of America which come together in a folk-art inspired, stacked landscape.
These little pockets of life include a looming big city, a pancake flippin’ lumberjack cabin, a bustling apartment complex, a cookie cutter suburb, a bonafide hippie camp, and a black sheep farm.
Extra points if you can name that big city…
Fun Fact: Adventures in Babysitting used one of those buildings in a scene. (Imagine a miniature Elizabeth Shue).
