Mike Hall's drawings are produced digitally using a combination of design software and a pen tablet. The designs for the maps were inspired by engraved prints from the 19th century as well as the modernist graphic design of the 1950s and 1960s, that Mike has appropriated with a contemporary twist.
Growing up in the 'New Town' of Harlow, Mike has been captivated by maps, townscapes and architecture as long as he can remember - both real and imagined. In 2008 he graduated from the University of Westminster in London in with a degree in Illustration. Throughout his career he has worked with clients both large and small and is now represented by the agency Illustration Ltd.
In 2014 he moved with his partner to the Spanish city of Valencia where he continues to work.
