My name is Filippo Vanzo and I am a Stockholm-based, Italy-born-and-raised freelance cartographer and illustrator.

I create illustrated maps for a wide variety of industries and purposes, such as books, games, advertising, museums, magazines, and for private use.

I work with many different mediums, depending on the project. I usually work with ink or pencil, and add the color and typography in post-production. I work 100% digitally if the project requires extra flexibility.

I love nature, hiking, maps, dinosaurs, video games, progressive and folk music, riding my bicycle, and sleeping. If I were not an illustrator, I would probably want be a wildlife photographer, or a park ranger.
