My aim was to create a consistent series of graphic maps. I was given the first draft of the copy containing the destinations, then I sketched out the map, before scanning into Adobe Illustrator. Roughly, there were 10 – 15 pin points which I illustrated in the form of characters or objects relevant to the piece.
