I illustrated a map for the Dragon of the Month club book series.
The series follows the adventures of Ayana Fall and Tyler Travers two friends who stumble across an extraordinarily magical book and soon find themselves enrolled as members of a very special and exclusive club – The Dragon of the Month Club. On the thirteenth of every month a new dragon conjuring spell is revealed and the two friends attempt to summon the latest Dragon of the Month. But one day when a conjuring spell somehow goes wrong Ayana and Tyler find themselves unexpectedly drawn into a fantastical world of adventure based on the various books scattered all across Tyler’s messy bedroom.

So, the map is basically super-imposed onto the layout of the bedroom. See if you can make out the bed and the study desk…
Brief note on the technique:
For a while, I was puzzling over how to make my line drawings stand out, or look a little more interesting than your standard line drawing. You basically have to use line weights effectively. The concept is simple but effective. Basically, you figure out where your light is coming from, and on the shadow side of all the buildings and forms, you use a thicker line weight.
Imagine also, that you are an ant crawling on the surface of the items in the drawing. Now, whenever the ant crawls over an edge and can’t be seen, you have to draw that edge thicker. Edges that divide faces that face the viewer have thinner lines that edges that divide faces where one faces the viewer and one is hidden from the viewer.
