If Van Gogh Made Maps
Here's another little Mapbox GL created map. The Van Gogh Map uses a few images from Van Gogh paintings as textures for the map feature types.
Feature types on this map, such as water and different types of land cover, are made up of map tiles created with textures taken from Van Gogh paintings. The result is a map style which you probably wouldn't want to use very often but the map does serve as a neat demo of how easy it is to create interesting map styles with Mapbox GL.
This is the second Mapbox GL map I've seen this week. The first, Birthplaces of Liverpool Football Club Players, is a handy little demo map showing how to add markers with text labels in Mapbox GL.
