Map of Guien

Graphite on Daler-Rowney 200g (A3) + Digital

The first time my friend and author, Andrew Aston, told me about the novel he was working on, I knew he was into something really special. He shown me a map he drew himself to keep track of the events and locations on his world and it really captured my mind. I’m not a cartographer but I offered Andrew to redraw the map as I thought it should look.

In retrospect I should have worked on a bigger format. To be able to create all the details I wanted on an A3 I had to use some magnify glasses – talking about feeling old!

Originally I wanted to create a full colour map. But due to time restrictions and other commitments I had to leave it as line art. Though I made it look weathered and frayed.
