Houston Locals: A visualization of Houstonians and their particular locality

Houston is a large and diverse city. It’s the fourth largest in the United States,and number one in Texas with a population of 2,240,974 as of this year. Having no zoning laws,  has caused Houston to grow in an unusual manner an created an inner city with  various areas well known by Houstonians. This can be quite daunting for visitors  and new residents alike.

I have lived in Houston for almost a year now and find it fascinating, and helpful, to generally classify all of these locations. About every two weeks I will be posting  a set of illustrations that focus on a well known Houston area and compile all of my observations on its corresponding residents. Much like info graphics these  illustrations are no more than a visual shorthand intended to communicate found information as simply, and humorously, as possible. Enjoy this first post!
