I really enjoyed doing this project, I draw like crazy for almost a month. It’s a weird graphic, at least it’s something different from what I had always done. I liked the end result.
One day I went to sketch to Kowloon Walled City Park, which is where this city for years … I was unaware of the history of this enclave. In this park, there’s a small resort with explanations of what was Kowloon Walled City, or the City of Anarchy, even a panel with a cut section of the city. Since I saw it I thought that should be the theme for a graph.
I talked to Steve Case and Simon Scarr and everything was very easy, it was the year of the anniversary of the demolition of the mad city, so it was easier to convince publishers to make this infographic. City of Anarchy has had a huge success, social networks spread it like wildfire, websites like Gizmodo helped it that … and then this infographic received several awards, gold digital graphics for the WAN-IFRA Asia Pacific , Gold in Malofiej awards, two Award of Excellence in the SND, first prize for the Press Association in Hong Kong, also a silver in the WAN-IFRA and printed graphics
