Illustration of an East Vancouver Sandwich Map

I live for sandwiches. So why not an illustration of an East Vancouver sandwich map? Happily, there’s no shortage of delicious options nearby. And good parks to eat them in, too.

The map includes the two neighbourhoods of Hastings-Sunrise and Grandview-Woodlands.

I’d like to give a big thanks to Uppercase magazine and the talented pair at They Draw and Travel for the contest for this map. They said,  “draw a map of the creative and curious”.

As a self-employed illustrator, it’s always too easy to put everyone else’s artwork first – and leave my own art-making for last. This contest came at just the right time on a Friday that I went for a walk/snack, and drew this quickly to send in. A creative and curious way to end the week!

New Illustration to Support Child Health

Here’s a new illustration map to support child health for Live5210.ca in BC. One of the nice parts about this feel-good project was that the take-home message of 5-2-1-0 really stuck with me, too. It’s simple and elegant: 5 fruits and veg, 2 hours of screen time (well, it’s something to aspire to in my computer-heavy life!), 1 hr of exercise and 0 sugary drinks.am bradd, artist, vancouver, image, what is graphic recording, what is graphic facilitation, illustration, SCOPE BC, Live 5210, childhood health, kids health resources, community resources, map, community wellness, community building, what is collaboration, union, illustrator, best practice, vector, best practice, visualization, visual learners, infographic, graphic design, information design, non profit, health, knowledge translation, education, sustainability,

The site has a wealth of resources. There’s guidelines for families and tools for engaging decision makers in all sectors. It’s knowledge translation at its best, with a fun and easy to navigate map.

As always, it’s a collaborative effort. Research is led by the team at Children and Family Research Institute, and the Straydog Branding team put it all together into the interactive tool. Find the map here: http://www.live5210.ca/resources/
