I recently had the opportunity to draw a map illustration of the San Juan Islands for Seattle Metropolitan Magazine (August Issue). It reminds me of one of those placemat maps you see in roadside diners.
It was a real learning experience. I rarely have to make things that read super small. So I had to simplify my normal drawing technique. I think it worked out well. Thanks so much to the Seattle Met team for giving me such a meaty project.
Below are some roughs of how it developed. Thanks for taking a gander.
