• Map of Door County
  • Map of Pacific Coast Highway
  • Map of Africa

One of my favorite projects to work on is illustrating maps. I started a series of maps based on places on my bucket list, The Serengeti National Park in Africa, the Pacific Coast Highway, and Door County, which is a vacation place I get to go to quite often.

My process includes:

  • Researching the location
  • Researching just the right perspective of the map
  • Laying down the grid
  • Setting in the street names and locations
  • Figuring out which icons I will need to communicate the story of the location
  • Any other graphic elements to make the place seem inviting
