Beck graduated from the prestigious Oxford University, but left his office job in order to become a cartographer. He’s also an avid outdoorsman and an expert at orienteering, a sport which involves using a map and compass to quickly navigate point-to-point in unfamiliar terrain. He got the idea of drawing a design in the snow after a day of skiing in 2004. He’s had a fascination with geometric designs since childhood, and the hobby became a way for him to indulge that interest while also getting plenty of exercise – all that walking in circles totals up to nearly 20-25 miles per drawing!
