A Whereabouts Map is a hand-drawn map of a street, town or village, with one or more close-ups of your home or favourite place, attentively drawn by Bristol illustrator and cartographer, Aidan Meighan.
Our maps are a perfect way to celebrate a new beginning, or act as a lasting reminder of a well-loved home soon to be left behind. Anywhere in the world, in the city or the countryside, a Whereabouts Map is a unique record of your favourite place and its surroundings.
These personalised artworks make for a thoughtful and unique gift to all homeowners, newly-weds and families alike.
Your bespoke, illustrated artwork will be a high quality giclee print, signed by the artist, available framed or unframed.
Our maps are all individually hand drawn and therefore typically take up to 4 weeks to be completed. Before beginning work or your map Aidan will need just two things: the postcode of the central property/location of the map, and a photo of your desired closeup/closeups.
