Another map illustration, this time for British Heritage (US) magazine, for a story about Lizzie from Pride & Prejudice, and her travels through the midlands up to the Peak District. It was nice to draw some familiar landmarks - Warwick Castle was always a classic school trip destination. This map was to run pretty small, just 10cm wide in the page, so I simplified the drawings, focussing on line work & avoiding unnecessary textures & details.
I don't often show many of these smaller editorial projects, but perhaps they make good blog stories! I was commissioned by The Wall Street Journal to produce another map for their Off Duty section, this time of Provence, showing it's native wine regions. I added a twist of rosé to the colour palette and pared down the labelling. It was refreshing to work on such a simple map which wasn't dominated by landmarks.
