So, I got a little map happy this weekend and have added Seattle, Raleigh, Savannah, Memphis, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles to my maps series! I had no plans/intentions of adding new maps so soon, but when you want to draw maps, you draw maps!


Be sure to stop by and visit the new arrivals in the shop!

Savannah, LA, and Vegas have been on the back of my mind for awhile, so they were the first ones I drew. They're the most frequently requested, and I genuinely wanted to illustrate each of them anyways.  LA and Vegas are both such popular tourist spots that I couldn't not  include them. Savannah's touristy too, but, more importantly, it  worked perfectly with the simple pink and green color scheme I've been waiting to use. 

While I was at it, I decided to add Memphis and Raleigh as a thank you to everyone there who's shown interest in my work! I've tried to pay more attention to where I'm mailing my art off to, and my current mental notes have revealed  Memphis and Raleigh to be among my biggest supporters! So, consider these maps my bright + colorful thank you for your support.

Once I had those 5 completed, I added Seattle because I wanted an excuse to draw the space needle.....Plus, its rainy reputation meant I could fill it with monochromatic blues, which I think make it my first monochromatic map! 

If I'm missing your favorite city, leave a comment below. Denver (already have a sketch for it!), Sydney, and Dublin are currently on my radar, but I'd love to hear from you! I've also gotten a few requests for Kansas City, San Antonio, and Minneapolis, but I'm not so sure about those yet...


Have a colorful week!
