8.5x11" map, stitching, colored pencil
In the past week, I've become obsessed with making maps and my mind is swirling with ideas. It all started when I picked the book Personal Geographies: Explorations in Mixed-Media Mapmaking by Jill Berry. After reading just a few pages of the book, an incredible drive to make maps, to invent maps, began. And it is not that I am doing any of the projects in the book - just reading about creative map-making has sparked something just amazing. I haven't yet finished the book, as I am reading it bit by bit. The projects from numerous artists in Jill's book look ultra cool. But I am off on a bunch of tangents which involve stitching, painting, and collage. It's a map quest.
