Hi! I'm an illustrator who enjoys travelling, I keep visual journals wherever I go and have just started designing Maps.
Maps By Rebecca Laura
I wanted to explore travel illustration a little further so I participated in a Skillshare Class with Esther Nariyoshi in illustrating a boarding pass! Unable to travel and with the British weather being drizzly, I often dream about being back in Kwazulu Natal. 13 years ago I flew to Durban (where my mum was born) to visit her side of the family. We went to Durban, Zululand and Umhlanga Rocks, where we stayed at Game Reserves, Hotels and my great uncle's farm.
I moved to the seaside town of Eastbourne 6 years ago and it's a town where there's something for everyone of any age. For me, I fell in love with the independent cafes there and they each have their own unique theme and vibe.
During the second UK Lockdown, I am quarantining in Hove, a place I've got to know fairly well over the past few years. Locals refer to the town as "Hove, actually" because Brighton&Hove is the official name for the city (Brighton) and "Hove actually" differentiates itself as a town by the city of Brighton.
