About This Class


I'm Steph, a freelance illustrator and welcome to my first class "The Art of Map Design: Illustrate Your Own Map". In this class we will explore ways you can design and create your own illustrated map of somewhere which is personal to you. I'll teach you how to bring the different elements of your map design together before you complete it in a medium of your choice.

This class is for absolutely anyone! No need for any specific equipment other than a pencil and paper. Your maps can be as big or as detailed as you wish, in colour or black and white, paint or pencil, digitally rendered or painted with watercolours- the choice is yours!


I look forward to having you onboard... Let's get started!
