A couple of months ago, I heard about a Map Making class on Skillshare. As it was being taught by the über-talented and well-travelled Anne Ditmeyer, I couldn't possibly resist. Sadly, I wasn't able to give it my all at the time but the good news is that, having paid for the course once before, I now have unlimited access to it and no need to pay ever again - yet another reason to love Skillshare!
Once I had made a hand-drawn map of a fantasy date with myself, I was utterly and irrevocably hooked.
Below is a quick doodle I made earlier today of my school run route.
I intentionally left out any detail and opted for painterly shapes instead. I also chose to focus on the view of my side of the road en route from my house.
I am determined to make the most of the feedback and camaraderie of the other students this time and keep up with my project milestones.
If you are as bananas for unconventional maps as I am, you can follow my Pinterest inspiration board here.
