Steven has the chance to speak with freelance artists David Gee, known for his "Doodle Maps". Doodle maps are hand-drawn, cartoonish, inked illustrations sometimes described as "a caricature of a map". Dave explains the creative process behind the maps, which is about capturing the feel of a city or region in his unique style rather than creating a perfectly geographically accurate representation of a location. Besides standard prints, he also often creates murals. The discussion is an interesting peak behind the curtain of a life of an artist working in the mapping space. I encourage you to explore Dave's website, where maps can be purchased as prints, on mugs, masks, etc.
An example of Dave's work:
Every week we discuss themes from the geo industry, interview Geomob speakers, and provide regular updates about our own projects.
