Walking tour of my neighborhood

Hello class!

I love maps and how they look, I have no formal training in illustration/drawing or any other artistic related discipline (I am an engineer)...but I live in a really interesting neighborhood in Brussels and have always thought of making a simple walking tour of my favorite places. Found this class and jumped right in. I am a bit intimidated by the beauty in your (my classmates) projects, but I'll give it my best shot. I've already found plenty of inspiration from other projects and may have to "borrow" some of those techniques.

Why am I making this map?

Basically for fun. I think I live in a really interesting neighborhood and it'll be fun to show all my favorite places in a map.

Why am I the expert to create this map?

Because they are MY favorite places

Who is my target audience?

Me, and it'll be a good starting point for people who visit

What level of detail do I need to include?

Street names and place names, nothing more

Do I want my final project to be printed or digital?

Hand drawn. I am thinking of making several ones with different themes e.g. favorite restaurants, architecture, shops.
