The With Love Map

07 March 2017

Last year I was asked to illustrate a map of the UK for The With Love Project, who were on a mission to meet people creating things with a real passion and purpose. They took a 2 week trip around the Uk and documented their journey and the inspirational people they met in a book called ‘The Backbone of Britain.’ The book was funded by Kickstarter and generously supported by G.F.Smith paper. My illustration was featured on the first page inside the book.

You can discover more about the project and buy the book here

The map went through quite a few changes along the way…as shown in these process pictures.


I tried out different colours for the map, before eventually deciding that black, red and white, the With Love brand colours worked much better with the book. Everything was drawn and painted by hand and then scanned in and tweaked afterwards.
