I've always been drawn to illustrated maps. They're like a grown up version of those beautifully illustrated children's books that I used to read. I probably spent waaay more time getting lost in the pictures than I did reading the books.
I would like to make you guys aware of a fabulous Illustrator named Michael A. Hill.
I just adore his work! The details, the colors, and his ability to make his drawings
come to life are amazing! I could just stare at them for hours!
He illustrates these beautiful maps (which I've started collecting), for
Lucky Magazine's monthly shopping guide. So it's always a treat for me to see what he's created. I've just recently discovered that he has an online portfolio and there you can see a lot more of his amazingness (if you will allow me to use that word). If you want to escape for a little bit, go check out his work! It's really fun!
Here's my little collection. Maybe one day I'll have enough for a little book,
or better yet, maybe he will come out with a book of maps! hint, hint : )
Is there anything you love now that takes you back to your childhood?
