Site of the Week: They Draw & Travel

Started by a brother-and-sister design duo, They Draw & Travel is a website and blog Nate Padavick and Salli Swindell share their own creations and provide space for other map enthusiasts to find artist-made maps and to upload their own!

There is no map of Santa Barbara or UCSB yet, but California maps include a guide to biking the beaches of Los Angeles by Nate and the Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco by Nata Metlukh.  The site features a robust search engine, a Google map mash-up of all the submissions so far, and a blog highlighting news from the world of people who love to document their travels by creating maps!  Below is a map of Paso Robles by Central Coast illustrator Monika Roe.
