Illustrated Maps

 

 

Here are some illustrated maps that I have done for Discover Britain Magazine. I really enjoy illustrating maps - you get to do lots of fun spot illustrations and also hand draw some type. What could be better?

 

Illustrated Map of the Isles of Scilly for Discover Britain Magazine by Elly Jahnz, Foxcub Studio

Despite living in Cornwall for over ten years, I've *whisper* never been to the Isles of Scilly. I know, right! And it's somewhere where I've wanted to go since I was ten and watched a programme about diving there. It's only about 40 miles from where I live so I have no excuse really but there you go. It's on the (long) list.

I love exploring the Cotswolds so this map was a lot of fun to do. There are so many cute towns and old houses which were great to draw - all those timber frames! Beautiful.
