Maps By Sarah Crumb
I decided to illustrate a map of the downtown Bothell area, with highlights being my family's favorite walking routes, some of our favorite businesses to visit, and a few main landmarks. We are a family of fantasy fans: we read Lord of the Rings, we play Dungeons and Dragons regularly, we dress up in costumes. So it felt right to honor our interests and illustrate the map like a fantasy story.
