Serendipity, The Medical Medium & Mapology Guides

December 3, 2018

I recently finished a fairly lengthy and very fluid process with freelance Writer Lottie Storey and Mapology Guides. It began in a very serendipitous manner after my partner who has long been experimenting with diet came across a blog called Colour Living via Anthony William, who is also known as the Medical Medium. Colour Living is hosted and written by Tina Bernstein who also curates and created Mapology Guides which are quirky and beautifully illustrated self help guides presented as a folded 'map'. My partner who was intrigued by latter brought my attention to it, which in turn piqued my interest. So I wrote to Mapology Guides to find out more and after some toing and froing Tina asked me to do some illustrating. I also ended up doing the 28 day detox recommended by the Medical Medium with my partner and it was absolutely fantastic.... 

 

 

Tina, Lottie and I originally got together and brainstormed ideas for the Map which was loosely about thinking too much and possible remedies to counter this....here are some early illustrations...

 

 Above is a suggested reverse side for the Map and below the main illustration with space to accommodate text...

This haunted house idea (haunted by thoughts etc) wasn't used in the end because we felt that the imagery was downbeat and might be a little depressing so the visual concept changed to the idea of  Fun Fair. Lottie came up with a sub heading of The Not So Fun Fair...for the reverse of the map with the main illustration depicting a Utopian funfair where thinking is positive and uplifting...

 

The above is the original drawing I made for the idea of a Utopian Fun Fair... the finished Map which is called Overthinking - the not so fun fair is out today and available from Mapology Guides....Here's the front cover...
