Happy Friday. I’m so excited for the weekend. We have plans for some B-B-Q’s, Fireworks, and a few projects around the house, 4th of July weekend is my favorite of the summer. Before we leave to enjoy some fun in the sun. I thought I’d share my latest love.
I love maps in general but I’ve recently become mildly obsessed with illustrated maps. I can’t get over how many cool and unusual maps there are. People are using these maps in all kinds of creative ways included custom maps for wedding invitations.
As I type I’m thinking of how I can create my own custom version of my hometown area with some landmarks on the lake. I think that would be so cute and fun.
Here’s some of the more remarkable illustrated maps that have me dreaming of my own version I’ve found along the way. I’ll be sure to draw upon these for inspiration when I decide to tackle this project.
I also found this great illustrated map tutorial by Paper Fox Press. Be sure to check it out. I know I’ll be visiting this again sometime soon.
Happy Independence Day everyone! We’ll be back Tuesday with all the fun in the sun this weekend had to offer, but until then Happy B-B-Q’ing!
