My new year’s resolution for 2017 was to read a hundred books that year, and in doing so it occurred to me that I’d virtually travelled to a lot of places whilst reading them. I thought it would be an interesting idea since then to sketch some of these fictional and non-fictional places as a way to try out new ideas for illustrated maps.
