The Pica pica challenge continues, this time with the word “Map”. So far enforced creativity works rather well. I decided to go for a classic fantasy-look, since I had recently procured some new calligraphy pens that I wanted to try out (also, I rather like that kind of map). I’m very pleased with the result, though of course there are things I would like to change or improve.
The map of an is loosely (by my standards…) based on the island Hidra at the southernmost tip of Norway, where I spent my summers as a child. It’s a lovely place, remarkably lush despite the dramatic geology. One of my absolute favourite places in the world. To the North of the island is a narrow strait; on the opposite side from where the small channel dug at the end of the fiord — effectively dividing the island into two islands — is the most beautiful mountain I know.
