Custom illustrated map created for colouring in the South Downs National Park

We loved working with the South Downs National Park Authority again on our 5th colouring mural commission! Maria illustrated this map of the South Downs National Park that we reproduced 7 times into giant colouring canvasses that were coloured by the public at events throughout 2019.

The 3D map is illustrated with the chalk hills typical of the South Dows and the Clay Hills of the Western Weald, buildings and landmarks are drawn in a loose isometric style, whilst the twisting boughs of the trees are layered above their foliage, reminiscent of mid-century Scandinavian art.

The map shows the paths of the six key rivers that meander through the park, Cuckmere, Ouse, Rother, Adur, Meon and Itchen. You can also see the path of The South Downs Way, the only National Trail that lies completely within a national park, spanning its entire length.
