About the project: The brief was to make illustrations for a map for a Tall Ships’ event that would be of interest and be picked up by people not primarily interested in the Tall Ships’ Races.
I made lots of little “Easter eggs” you can discover in the map, some fantastic, some just plain normal but not too well represented: a breastfeeding mermaid, wheelchair users stage diving, 50% male and female crews, same sex couples with kids, grandma climbing the rigging, a female pirate captain, secret passages at Bryggen, and a mermaid in a bouncy castle. Layers that makes the map fun to read.
Local people might also recognize some of the characters.
I also made campaign illustrations, the ones underneath were made for use on different social media platforms.
