Designing the whaam! style in Mapbox Studio

Inspired by a Roy Lichtenstein original at the Walker Art Center, I decided to design the whaam!map. In his early career, Lichtenstein worked as a comic book artist which inspired his later work. I kept my whaam! style limited to four stylistic mainstays:

  • Thick black outlines
  • “Ben Day” dot texture
  • Starbursts
