Haydn has produced this New Zealand illustrated map featuring Haydn’s favourite tourist destinations from his 2 month visit. This map features the magical Milford Sound, energetic Queenstown to the mind-blowing Rotorua, and is illustrated to be used by tourists and those who want to visit this brilliant country.
The composition was developed in Haydn’s sketchbook, and uses a limited colour palette. The main challenge with this illustrated map was to communicate each place effectively, fitting everything into quite a small width. The main purpose of this illustration was to give the audience a flavour of each location, without too much of a bias towards one place or area (which was difficult has Haydn loves Milford Sound).
Created with acrylic and scanned digitally, the illustration gives viewers a chance to plan their route, see what areas they like the look of, and communicate why New Zealand is such a special country. Haydn highly recommends a visit to anyone!
