How would you illustrate ‘Philadelphia’s bureaucracy’?

    Help Tony Auth illustrate our new blog Taxipedia. It’s all about about the Philadelphia’s attempt to fairly appraise all residential and business properties in the city — the Actual Value Initiative, or AVI. He’s working on a series of drawings now. How would you personify the city’s bureaucracy? 

    I’m about to do a series of drawings that will illustrate the extremely popular NewsWorks blog Taxipedia, which explains the Actual Value Initiative, Philadelphia’s attempt to fairly appraise all residential and business properties in the city.

    How would you portray the city’s representatives who you have to deal with?

    Tell me in the comments below, email me, or tweet me: @bytonyauth.

    The AVI is a cause of high anxiety among the city’s residents. One of the problems with illustration is how to personify Philadelphia’s bureaucracy. The sketches here illustrate my first thoughts on how I might do this.
