Illustration I made for the loading screen of the Paypal Here iPad app.
Using the September 1958 cover of Better Homes as the inspiration for this commission, I wanted to show the idea of community by making the whole illustration look like aplatformer. I wanted everyone to be in close proximity to one another - with houses, buildings and different places of work as points of interests.
The layout was revised to optimize it to the size and orientation of the iPad app.
I worked with Chris Sybico, designer of Paypal on this project.

The illustration scrolls from left to right to show the entire panorama.
