I was commissioned to illustrate a map covering Northern Ireland which would be published for Brussels airline inflight magazine. The illustrated map would highlight sights of interests such as Belfast the Titanic Centre, Bushmills Distillery, The Giant’s Causeway, Carrick a Rede rope bridge, Giant’s Causeway, Portrush, Portstewart and Dunluce Castle.
The Northern Ireland map was an interesting map to work on stylistically for me. The maps I have illustrated in the past, I would place the location on to the map, this works will if their is space for the locations to work within the composition. The issue with the Northern Ireland map was with the difficulty with placing the locations with in the magazine dimensions. The solution for this issue was to crop the location drawings and place them within floating image bubbles. This stylistic approach worked with the available space and composition with out compromising the map.
