Palm Beach International Boat Show 2015 – Illustrated Map

Palm Beach International Boat Show map 2015

I have just completed the illustrated map for the 2015 Palm Beach International Boat Show. This is my fifth year creating the map and it’s still exciting. This year the show expanded once again to the south. If you attend the show every year you may be surprised at just how much the map has changed in the past five years. Below you can see previous years maps for comparison as well as some sign examples.

New Maps for Great Blue Resorts

John Potter 0 Comments

I’ve just completed a series of illustrated maps of resorts for Great Blue Resorts. Great Blue Resorts has multiple resort venues, each with it’s own unique personality. They had a need for some visually appealing maps to help visitors orient themselves while maintaining a consistent look from map to map. I have found the folks at Great Blue Resorts to be a great pleasure to work with and I have had a lot of fun creating these maps. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them.

Fort Lauderdale A1A Marathon Poster Illustration

I have just completed the illustration to be used as a promotional poster for the Fort Lauderdale A1A Marathon & Half Marathon. I’m very excited and looking forward to the run and associated expo. I am showing many of the sketches and work progression in this post so that you can have an inside look at the creation process.

I would like to thank Katty Peraza of KP Designz for suggesting this great idea and her patience and direction as well as the folks at Exclusive Sports Marketing, Inc. for giving me the opportunity to create the poster.
