Project overview:

Create an awesome illustrative or abstract design for a map of the world. Use anything you’re passionate about to help give personality to your map illustration. Start with some simple sketches and gradually build this up into a full illustration. Consider colour, textures, and styling.

Check out the inspiration examples for some help getting started, but remember that there are plenty of ways to style a map. Start with sketching out a rough outline of the seven continents before you start spending time illustrating smaller regions.

Perhaps your map could include specific food types or animals that are popular in certain regions, or maybe you want to focus your map on music or fashion from around the world. It's up to you, so research and plan some possible directions, sketch out some initial concepts then finalise your map in whatever medium or format you wish, not forgetting to spend time on the small details that will bring the design together.
