Soil map inspired illustrations...
Here are some initial drawings I have done onto graph paper that are inspired by soil maps.
All readable information has been removed in the form of keys or labels as I want to concentrate on the beauty of the map. Combining a soft muted pallette and grids I have tried to soften the hard utilitarian design found in modern maps.
The patterns I have filled areas in with are key symbols found in different maps which I have then repeated over and over again.
