The site 'They Draw & Travel' is based on the fact that every traveler loves cool insights from locals and that artists love to find inspiration from their traveling.
A spin-off of the 'They Draw & Cook' web initiative, which collects illustrated recipes, They Draw & Travel offers a space for globetrotter illustrators to share the love and the cool experiences of their favorite travel destinations. The illustrated maps you find on the site have all the insights you need to truly enjoy a city or region and go off-the-beaten-track like a true connoisseur. The skillfully, artfully and beautifully illustrated maps might even be an inspiration to choose your destination.
The maps on They Draw & Travel are catalogued by region, activity type (like 'festival,' 'artsy,' 'beachy,' 'outdoorsy' or just 'crazy') and art style ('fresh & hip,' 'fun & funky' and 'sweet & cute'). You can search, upload, share, comment and print these maps as your heart desires. Getting in the mood for traveling has never been easier.
