I decided to partake in the #30DayMapChallenge to make a map every day in November on a different theme.
It was harder than I thought it would be, mainly the effort and will power involved to produce something in the evenings after a long day at work. I usually take time when making maps and models, and consider the details. This definitely required a new approach – making simple maps that are low res and not getting hung up on the things that you perceive are wrong with it (which most people probably never notice).
Whilst being hard work, it has been really enjoyable engaging with people and I have definitely made some new connections and discovered some fantastic work. Its a great showcase for people that don’t usually share their work, and a nice positive community feel to it.
I feel that my work has progressed by doing the challenge, after being forced by a lack of time to go with a creative decision, and make it work.
