They Draw and Travel
Nate Padavick and Salli Swindell, a brother and sister team, are the genius behind the map project They Draw & Travel. The site features illustrated maps from an array of artists. Each map details a given location and often highlights a specific activity or topic. From the most endangered reptiles of Madagascar to a U.S. beer trail in California, the maps are undeniably unique.
You can cruise through the entire archive of illustrated maps, or search individual maps based on vibe, region, and art style. If you’re more of a gourmand than a cartographer, the sister site They Draw & Cook features illustrated recipes from artists around the world.
