Creating cut-paper maps with illustrator Christian Robinson

Create a cut paper map with award-winning illustrator Christian Robinson. In this episode of Making Space, Robinson demonstrates how and why making a map can help us find our way.

Doubt, uncertainty, and feeling lost can be constant companions on the road to creativity. On today’s Making Space, let’s make a map that reminds us that it’s okay to feel lost sometimes, and encourages us to keep going and ask for help when we need it.

Robinson is also giving away a copy of a book that he illustrated, the one that inspired this video: Just in Case You Want to Fly by author Julie Fogliano. Comment on his Instagram post (not the video) while that contest is open.
