Maps are a lot of fun to illustrate once you get over the fact that to make them look good and fit into a certain space most can't possibly be drawn to scale. This is a map of Madrid I illustrated awhile ago. It's one of my favorite maps I've done so far.
I'm posting this particular illo today to celebrate the launch of Lena Corwin's book Maps. I became aware of Lena's illustrated maps when I saw them regularly in an interior design magazine. They are clean and colorful, reminiscent of Scandinavian design which I'm a sucker for because I'm Danish! It's a real treat that she's put them all together in a book! Congratulations Lena!
