2018 - a year in maps

In 2018, I set myself a goal to create a little map every day of the year. Most are routes from my own daily activities, such as runs, walks, bike rides, with a few other random maps when I didn't manage to get out.

The idea behind the project was to improve my map drawing skills, and develop my own style, while studying historical mapping techniques from old Ordnance Survey maps to further back and the likes of Joan Blaeu.

Here they all are in a gallery from start to finish.
