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.

It takes time to build a brand and it takes time to go around shops and get to stock them.

We are all about slow living so it's ok that things take their time.

With a range of three very different maps we have our hands full. For now we are really humbled to have our maps stocked in places like The Wellcome Collection, Foyles Bookshop in Charing Cross Road, The Idler Academy in Westbourne Grove, Nook in Stoke Newington and Snap on Roman Road.
