After the Map of Africa was published in the Travel + Leisure, I got an email from a man who saw the piece and wanted a painting of Africa, just like it - with some more animals... It was missing gorillas.
So I was commissioned to do this second version. I was happy with the final.
I've recently been working on several maps with John Sheppard over at Travel + Leisure. I had a blast working on them. Plus, it almost felt like I got to travel to these places...almost.
This first one was on Africa. It was for a safari adventure, and needed a map that fit that theme.
We went with a modernized version of those vintage maps with little animals on them. It was a full page spread, with the title above and call outs around the sides.
