My first link also links to a map that he made of the LA Pacific Electric system back in 1926, and LA's freeways today, done in the same style.

Jake Berman's art page: Fifty-Three Studio. It has Retro Maps – Fifty-Three Studio -- past systems and past proposals - Modern Maps – Fifty-Three Studio - present-day maps - Speculative Maps – Fifty-Three Studio - possible future ones.
