They Draw & Travel was created by Nate Padavick and Salli Swindell, a brother and sister design and illustration team who have been working together for over 10 years. They originally created They Draw & Cook, which has become the largest collection of illustrated recipes anywhere. Nate and Salli were blown away by the creative energy artists worldwide pour into their recipe illustrations, and they realised that artists have similar passion for their favorite places to live and visit. They launched They Draw & Travel as a place for artists to express that passion, and for readers to discover their creations.
