Take a Taco Tour
Street food is having a moment, especially in LA. TV channel Food Network TV commissioned Maps Illustrated to draw a couple of maps showing the locations of the top snack trucks. LA's proximity to Mexico means that it boasts some of the best Taco trucks in the States. But other nationalities are also on the scene. One map tells you how to locate the "Korean taco barbecue movement". Folks, you heard it here first. My maps are a mix of hand drawing and photoshopped images, intentionally bright and bold to reflect the painted images on the taco trucks themselves.
