They Draw And Travel: East Asia Book Cover

by | February 6, 2018 | Book reviews, From my desk, Illustration | 0 comments

I’m very excited to say I got the chance to work with They Draw & Travel. I’ve been regularly illustrating maps for their site and for their latest book of illustrated maps, and I was asked to illustrate the cover too: They Draw And Travel: East Asia.

The book is already out since December, but after my months-long, exhausting move at the end of the last year I didn’t have the chance to take a look at it.

I’ve finally received my copy now, and I have to say it’s really beautiful, full of inspiring maps and great locations all over East Asia that I know want to travel to, and I’m very happy how the cover turned out.


Nate (the founder of TDAT and publisher of the book) and I decided that a tumble of different icons related to the area would work best - plants, architecture, flags, animals, food and sights. I had a lot of fun while I was researching and drawing for this project, even though I worked on this without having a real desk (you shouldn’t really take on commitments when you’re moving, but everything worked out great and I’m happy I did!).

As always, I started with ink drawings and then moved on to Photoshop for coloring and adding texture.

I’m also featured with two maps inside the book (Mongolia and Beijing). All in all a great little germ with lots of fun illustrated maps!

Check it out on They Draw And Travel.

In this blog I write about art and nature, sketching, pigments and watercolor techniques, nature journaling, workshops and more.
I want to show how you can connect to nature through making art in your sketchbook, and how you can discover both the natural world and your own creativity that way.
