    Default South Manhattan in Anagrams

    It's not original, but I had to do something...

    Here's my first WIP (drawing the city took about an hour, doing the labelling & anagrams through the generator is a slog (6 hours so far) and not much fun and there's still a ton of streets to do) Most of the anagrams aren't even that funny. Still, I like 'Hooter Tormentors' . I guess that now I've started I'll stay with it for the want of a better idea.

    Genius, but not interesting before you zoom in and read the labels

    Phew....thanks for the encouragement. I've only visited NYC once, so I have no idea if the anagrams are hitting the mark given the places / streets etc. It is all about the labels, but I think it needs something more before it becomes a decent entry....not sure what though!

    Thanks again, this was feeling like a thankless task.

    Littlest tweeters and smutty rearers are my favourites so far I love it as an idea. It ould be nice to have some anagrams of the larger areas - like the hudson river and perhaps even Manhattan - so that viewers can see the concept at a glance and then they'll be drawn in to look at all the detail.

    Keep up the good work!

    Great Idea, Torstan, will do. On a more serious note the two around ground zero (Severest Yet 'Vesey Street' and Bitterly Terse 'Liberty Street') seem kind of right too.

    Very awesome idea! "Ate Dentures" and "Erect Rotters" are my favs

    I'm disturbed by the fact there is the intersection of Hottest Smear and Waterway Bods. I'm sure there is a "Not Safe For Work" movie about something like that...

    Very nice idea and I like the fact that there are so many streets that it's hard for somebody looking at the map to run short of anagrams(even though that's not necessarily good for you)

    Superb. I bet you'll be the one getting sales off of this one.

    More... more...
