Here at Mapology Guides we are big fans of illustrator Jenni Sparks who illustrated our What's Bugging You? map.

Over the weekend I stopped by We Built This City , the curated pop-up shop revolutionising London souvenirs. At their Carnaby Street site you'll find wonderful city-inspired goods, all from homegrown creatives. One such creative is super talented Jenni Sparks.

Over the weekend, Jenni created a big canvas entitled: Summer in London, which she hand drew at the Carnaby Street pop-up. It's always such a pleasure to see Jenni at work. Her bold strokes, humorous illustrations and witty text make for an inspirational mini masterclass.

New Year - New You!

Posted on January 12, 2015 by Tina Bernstein

A very happy New Year to everyone.

It's been a busy couple of months for Mapology Guides. Christmas is over. Apparently over 60% of us got unwanted gift. Were you one of them?

January is always a difficult month for people. Post holidays, gloomy weather conditions, work challenges. Did you know that there is a Blue Monday? No? It's the third Monday in January and considered the worst day of the year. In 2015 it falls onto Monday 19th January.

The good news is that help is at hand. Why not help yourself with our What's Bugging You map? Make a fresh start, dust off those cobwebs and make this year your best yet!

We are very fortunate to have John-Paul Flintoff, the writer of this map join us for a Tweet chat on 19th January at midday UK time. The hashtag is #WBUBLUE Why not join us and better still, why not send in your questions for John-Paul ahead of the Tweet chat? You might want to know how to use the map or ask something specific.
Meet John-Paul.

And because we want to help you make this year your best yet we are currently offering a 19% discount in the shop when you buy a What's Bugging You? map. Ends Tuesday 20th January.

Don't have a Blue Monday, have a Yellow one instead.
