Mike is a British freelance illustrator and designer based in Valencia, Spain.

Born in 1986 in Harlow, UK, he has been fascinated by maps and architecture for as long as he can remember, spending endless days of his childhood drawing local buildings and maps of places both real and imaginary.
Since graduating from the University of Westminster in 2008 he has developed a specialism in map illustration and architectural drawings. His work has appeared in magazines such as Esquire, Harper's Magazine, Road & Track, Time Out, Vanity Fair, and Which?, and in books published by Bloomsbury, HarperCollins, Penguin, Random House and Simon & Schuster. He has also designed visitor maps for BBC Countryfile Live, Butlins, Goodwood, Henley Royal Regatta and the Royal Horticultural Society.

In 2022, Mike was the joint winner of the Illustrated Travel Book of the Year prize at the Edward Stanford Travel Writing Awards alongside authors Matt Brown and Rhys B. Davies for their book Atlas of Imagined Places.

He is represented by the international agency IllustrationXFor more details about his commissioned work, please visit Mike's portfolio website.
