I'm really excited to share this map that I created for The Billion Oyster Project's NYC Billion Oyster Crawl, happening this September 16 through October 22. What an amazing organization! If you haven't heard about them yet, here's a little bit about what they do. Partnering with NYC restaurants and Earth Matter, the Billion Oyster Project collects discarded oyster shells and then uses them to rebuild NY Harbor reefs in the East and Hudson Rivers. But they do more than that! Part of their programming also involves outreach to NY public schools, educating tens of thousands of young people in local ecology and STEM at the New York Harbor School on Governer's Island. If you're interested in learning more about the restaurant events, then have a look at this article on Food Republic. Cheers!

Hey friends! I'll be upstate all weekend long with Dusty Rose Vintage for the Phoenicia Flea at Stone Ridge Orchard. Come on by and say hi if you're lucky enough to have escaped the city. I'll be selling maps and other prints. And bring some sunblock! I think it's going to be an amazing, sunshine-y weekend.
Thank you to Paula Flynn for featuring my work on her sight, The Shopkeepers! She put together this write-up of my Etsy shop, which incidentally is the perfect place to pick up a Valentine's Day gift for your beloved. Cheers!

I'm feeling pretty tired (and happy) after a weekend trip to Rock Hall, Maryland. It was my first time visiting that area of the Chesapeake, which was nice to have explored, considering I'm working on an illustrated map of this region right now. We ate piles of blue crab, dipped into the bay, and learned how to do the "rock hall wave" . The weekend wrapped up with a drive over the awesome Chesapeake Bay Bridge and into Baltimore, where I had a chance to see the neighborhood mural/campus map I did earlier in the year for University of Baltimore (some detail shots here). It was cool to see my work at that scale (the mural is 120' wide)!
In other news, I just wrapped up illustrations for a new book that will be available this October from Hardie Grant UK, called Man Made. Written by Dan Jones (who is completely hilarious), the book is full of tips, funny and serious, showing men how to be well-groomed and dressed for success. This was such a fun project! Here are some sneak peeks at the illustrations:
After working on my Paris map, Anne from Pret-a-Voyager wanted to learn a little bit about my map-making process, so I shared with her these insights on her awesome blog, pretavoyager. Here's a link to the post.
