Jenni Sparks is breathing new life into the art of hand-drawn cartography. Beginning with her quirky map of London and her follow up for New York, this doodler has been helping tourists get around big cities with her sense of humor and wit.

The maps point out contemporary landmarks, such as the 24-hour bagel shop in Brick Lane, London, as well as important historic points, such as Bob Dylan’s favorite hang-outs in Manhattan. Her style is impeccably fun yet helpfully accurate. This is art that really gets around town.
