I had the chance to illustrate some fun and colourful postcards for Outdoor Life for a feature about hunting and travel/road trips. Each card required a certain number of images to represent the location, some touristy things to do and the type of hunting to be done there. This was a ton of work but I love how the whole package came together.
I illustrated these vintage postcard style illustrations for the American Automobile Association magazine Texas Journey. The imagery I used includes landmarks and sites along three road trips outlined in the magazine, including the Texas Independence Trail, Blue Ridge Parkway (North Carolina through Virginia), and Hawaii Island’s Scenic Byways.
It had been a little while since I’d illustrated one of these pieces and along came an assignment where I was asked to do two of them. They’re a lot of fun for me to work on and while very time consuming, I love how they turn out in the end.
I’ve been meaning to illustrate one based on my little village of Westport, Ontario, so hopefully this will finally be the year I get that done.
