Chicago-base illustrator and outdoor enthusiast Katie Lukes. When she's not creating colorful, sometimes humorous illustrations for clients small and large, she’s probably traveling or mixing up a new cocktail recipe.

She worked with Mappy Hour chapter leaders to create custom Mappy Hour "doodle maps" that highlight living in the city and loving the outdoors.

Tonight we're going to chat live with Katie about

  • mapping the outdoors of Chicago, NYC, DC, Seattle, Denver and Bentonville
  • how she became a freelance illustrator for clients like Facebook and Uber
  • the connection between design and the great outdoors
  • how she balances living in the city and loving the outdoors

About the Mappy Hour Maker Series

Throughout our Mappy Hour community are incredibly talented makers. Many of whom do this work as a side project to full time jobs. We wanted to share their passions and skills with the broader community, which is why we're launching the Mappy Hour Maker Series. Every month, we'll feature a different maker from one of our chapters and give them the floor to share how they started, how the outdoors influences their creative processes and how you can win one of their custom pieces.

This entire series is presented by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. - so grab a cold brew, relax and come join in!

We're also sharing this series with our friends at Travel Massive - an international community of travelers.
