Another gorgeous map/chart of farmland from the 1979 book by William Bowen and Stewart Brand. This one shows crop patterns in a swath of land and the corresponding water usage. This is a zoomed in section of the much larger chart collection which has a legend about which colors mean which crops, but this segment was pretty enough to show just like this. The full maps are of a 2 mile by 70 mile strip of land in Fresno County, these are sub section of that.
A custom set of bamboo coasters bought by @glowmamablog as a wedding gift. The set is made up of special places to the bride and groom and includes the location, initials and date of the wedding. Such a special gift. Swipe to take a closer look.
Luego de unos días en Lombok nos fuimos a Malasia, en un vuelo de 3 hs. Ahí nos despedimos de Cami y seguimos nuestro viaje. No teníamos buenas referencias de Kuala Lumpur, pero a nosotros nos gustó el contraste de la gran ciudad frente a los pueblitos de playa y selva en los que habíamos estado.
Las Torres Petronas nos impactaron, son perfectas e imponentes!! Y alejándonos un poco de ese contexto súper urbanizado nos encontramos con las Batu Caves, un templo hindú dentro de una gigantesca cueva al que accedes subiendo una interminable escalinata de 272 escalones. Lo que se hace súper difícil por el calor! Lo más atractivo es la enorme estatua dorada de 42 metros de altura que hay en la entrada dedicada al dios Murugan.
Aprovechamos esos días para estar en shoppings con aire acondicionado y comprar tecnología a buen precio.
Luego nos fuimos a Georgetown, una ciudad en la isla de Penang declarada patrimonio de la humanidad por la Unesco, en donde se respira arte, y está lleno de murales y grafittis en las paredes, además de haber playas hermosas. .
Today is a BIG day for me! I have an interview at the Children’s Museum in Denver for a 3-month Artist-in-Residence gig! They have asked me to do a 15-minute activity with the interviewers as an example of a workshop I might teach if I were to get the job. I’ve decided to lead them through this watercolor technique that I learned as a kid and never forgot! Send me good vibes. I would LOVE the opportunity to teach again (did you know I was an art teacher in India back in 2001?!) and to share my art with kids and families in the community!
Travel Tuesday has got me feeling nostalgic about all of 2018’s trips. I hit so many new cities this year that it’s really hard to pick my favorite. And where to next? I guess I’ll have to throw a dart at a map and see what happens.
Really enjoying working on this world map commission. Just need to add some color. Look out for the final product (and print versions) coming soon! |🗺🖊✨
All my world maps can be purchased as canvas prints and I found a less expensive company to print them so I can now sell them so much cheaper than before! The original of this one was hand drawn. One of my favorites. https://www.etsy.com/shop/WanderWonderWorldMap?ref=s2-header-shopname
So... I know I posted the UK map yesterday, announcing its “newness”, but something bothered me about it - the background. So I’ve redrawn it and am happier now. So here it is again, replacing the other post, and available online. Once again, I will only sell a limited number online so, if you like it, buy it before it’s gone :)
Check out this page from an 1830 historical atlas titled “A.D. 1498, The Discovery of America”
It shows clouds of ignorance dissipating as geographic knowledge expanded over time.
