Shepherd Church was established in 1927 and is approaching its 100 year anniversary. In preparation of this milestone they are interviewing older members who remember the origins, the moves, the journey from the inner city to the farmlands, the building of the interstates and outer belt, and the changes as the farmlands changed into the suburbs. This map was created to help illustrate and record all of this.
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.
