Phoenix gets a bum rap.
It's the 6th largest city in the US, but it never gets the recognition that other much smaller cities do.
True, the downtown is a little scattered, and thanks to urban sprawl and the lack of decent mass transit, you're lost without a car. But there are loads of cool things -- great vintage shopping, amazing Mexican food and 75 degree winters (sometimes).
I have devoted most of my career writing about what's fun/interesting/worth doing in Phoenix, now I'd like to illustrate it in a way that's really compelling and cool.
