Orlando and New Orleans Travel Maps

Orlando and New Orleans Travel Maps - student project

Really enjoyed this! First time using these recommended pens and they were really fun to use. I've been journalling a trip I did back in 2012 around the US, so I picked a couple places we went. The icons I picked were places we went.

There's a balance between making an icon something that's easily recognisable for the place (e.g. the Universal globe) vs something personal that you remember about the place (e.g. the bed of nails in Wonderworks). I think a balance between the two works nicely.

Ok, so drawing straight lines without a ruler isn't easy, but I'm happy with it anyway!

I've enjoyed this approach a lot, so I'll probably continue with other places we've been. Thanks Mike!
