Sketchbook stories: a month of maps

It’s been map central in the studio in the past few months. These are just three of my favourites – stay tuned for more soon.


I love drawing in straight black ink on white – so simple but so effective. This map was designed to accompany traditional copperplate invitations for a Norfolk wedding this summer. I managed to squeeze in the stables, rose garden and greenhouses – England at it’s best!

Next up – to Scotland for a far-flung wedding in the Orkney Islands. This map was a brilliant one to create, with so much detail to include…

And finally… all the way to Africa for this map of the Kenyan coastline, commissioned by the legendary hotel Hemingways Watamu as a guide to the area for their guests. This was a total dream to create – spot elephants, flamingos, dhows, humpback whales, fishing boats, turtles and more!

I love creating maps – if you have an idea for a map that you need bringing to life, get in touch!
