During the month of March I've been participating in a listing exercise called 30 Days of Lists - I've done it twice before and often shared my lists here on the blog. This time around, if you want to learn a little bit more about me through my daily lists, you can check them out on Instagram. In addition to my lists, I've challenged myself to draw 30 maps over the course of the month.
The wheels in my head started turning about drawing maps back at Camp Mighty and continued when I added this same challenge last year to 30 Days of Lists and took a map design class on Skillshare. Since that time I've really taken a shine to drawing maps in my own particular way. So much so, that I drew the logo for this blog and am in the process of starting a small handmade business with my maps! You can get a sneak peek every now and then on this adventure on RambleGood's Instagram account.
Now in case you're wondering - I don't trace the outlines for these maps and they're not meant to be exact. I simply draw by hand with my eye on either a digital or paper map. While I've been experimenting with some pen only maps, it's these pen and watercolor versions that I really love creating. Since I've only shared peeks of these maps on Instagram, I thought I'd share the full view of a few of my favorites here on the blog.
The first map pictured in this post, Norway, was so far the most difficult to create and hands down my favorite final product. The following maps are all islands - can you guess which ones they are?
