map sketchbook

I made this book something like three years ago. I harvested the paper from some beautiful outdated aerial maps that were going to be tossed. I've always loved this book but never been certain what to do with it until recently. I painted these in gouache to get a nice opaque color, sometimes I used colored pencils if I want something more transparent. These are so much fun to do!  Enjoy!


  1. These are really incredible Jess! I love how you can still see a lot of the map with your pictures. I would totally hang something like this up in my house. Or use it as a coffee table book. You're so talented.

  2. That is so cool. Really fun idea!
