We signed on to the "tour" and theme: 1,703 Miles and Back. The theme piqued my interest since I was pretty sure I could use some maps in my work, and the fact that the tour was actually going to stop in Milwaukee in September. Turns out I won't be here after all when the tour arrives, but I had a seriously good time playing with the theme of what one might see on a trip to Milwaukee - maybe back in the 50's. And the nerd in me made sure I figured out the starting point, 1,703 miles from home - which turned out to be Halifax Nova Scotia, one of the most interesting places I've ever visited.
So I drew - a bit. And used maps and collage as much as I could along with the sketching so that it felt like a book I might actually do, which I did. And I had fun.
Here are some of my favorite pages.
