Colorado State map

Just polished off my final map for my trip to America, the great state of Colorado. 

The hardest part about this map was decided what to put in and what to leave out. Growing up my family went to Colorado every summer around July or August to escape the Texas heat. - People from Colorado often complain about Texas tourists, and yes, my family is certainly guilty! So I have a lot of love for the state. Nothing beats a mountain view, the smell of pine, and getting buzzed by curious hummingbirds.

 

California Map

Managed to finish off another US state map - this time California. California is a really awkward shape for creating a design of; I feel like there's a lot of empty space eithe rside of it. But my only options to fix that would have been to crop it or to squish it, which didn't appeal.

Next up will be Colorado, the final stop on my upcoming USA trip. I think that might be the last one of these maps I do for awhile.

Oregon Map

My Oregon state map is available on Redbubble in an amazingly wide variety of products. I'm also in the middle of the second map I'm making in anticipation of my USA trip - California. The rest of June is quite busy though, so it may be a little while before that one is finished.

 


New Maps - Part 5

Done!

I ended up shifting the text all the way into the middle of the state, as opposed to the far left side. 

Additionally I did some final colour tweaks and then brought everything into photoshop where I applied a soft bit of texture.

 

You can see a few detailed images here and if you're interested, you can buy prints or various other items featuring the map here.
