Cartography

I have traveled a lot and am fascinated by wayfaring and how maps are drawn. I like to hand draw maps and manipulate them Adobe Illustrator. Sometimes I’ll take a geographical map image and play with it in Illustrator as well.

What did I do?: The maps I create reflect the city somehow, whether they are quiet and still cities or bustling, open all night cities. And sometimes I take a small interesting part of the city map and create a piece of the city from that. For example; Copenhagen is quiet, still and small. Where people are very much into their homes and clean living. Whereas Berlin is a bustling gritty city of artists and revolutionaries, whose boundaries crawl beyond a safe sanctuary of East meets West.
