JItesh Patel is a illustrator based in a studio in Limehouse, East london. I am commissioned by creative agencies to illustrate maps for campaigns, products and editorials.
The first map I drew was for a woman I was dating and the map consisted of locations we visited as part of the date, and I drew them as a keepsake map which I drew in my Moleskine sketchbook.
One of my personal favorite projects that is a self-initiated one is to fly to a European city on a day trip and I draw the city in my little Moleskine sketch book. I scout a location while I'm in the city and I use the well-known landmark location as a backdrop where I hold up my sketchbook and take a photo for me social media platforms.
My creations are a blend of delicate, intricate forms, and good use of colour, composed together in a harmonizing way. It’s a matter of how I feel about the work I’m working on. If it feels right and I'm excited by it, I know I will be satisfied with the final piece.
