This year's theme is "Reading Takes You Everywhere!" and Anarda and I decided to theme it completely towards travel. So we are making marbled paper to use as end papers for the travel journals we are going to construct from scratch (hand-sewn signatures) in the first two weeks and, during the last three weeks, we are doing a four-part workshop on MAP-MAKING. We're very excited about it. We both signed up for Nate Padavick's map-making class he taught on Sketchbook Skool, and then browsed all the maps posted by the many amazing artists and designers on his (and his sister Salli's) website, theydrawandtravel.com.
Here is a pen drawing of my compass rose, and following is the same drawing, now watercolored. I'm pretty happy with it (although the north-south sword is a tiny bit crooked!). I'll publish the rest of my illustrations as I get them done.
Anybody recognize this castle?
