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.
I watched our bouvier, Ferris from my upstairs, studio window last week, playing in the backyard, amusing himself & just thought it would make a great map! We can’t always travel afar, but we can appreciate where we are, and make the best of what we have, and I certainly saw him doing that! lessons learned from our dog! he’s happy chasing his ball, or chewing on one of his many bones, or just rolling in the snow! He gets a big run everyday, and sometimes runs with me, but he’s just as happy in his yard! and he loves the snow! Hand-drawn & hand-lettered map, in ink & watercolours, our backyard. He’s such a great fella, full of life and always makes us laugh, he certainly can teach you to embrace life fully! I had a lot of fun with this map! and illustrating his busy day! no need to explain the yellow snow!
And I don’t mean tropical! A favourite vacation area, I think we’ve visited here at least 18 times, and it’s always as wonderful as the first visit! If you love & appreciate nature, this us the place to go! Driving the Cabot Trail is a must, and I recommend doing it clockwise & counter-clockwise, the vistas are outstanding! I love exploring Cheticamp Island, and cycling through the cows, watching the cormorants, treking to the sea’s edge, and watching the tolling waves! There is lots of hiking, a beautiful National Park for camping, fresh air & salty seas! We had the once in a lifetime pleasure of being joined on an afternoon kayaking expedition by a pod of pilot whales!
Celtic music & mountins, it’s one of the most beautiful spots in Canada, if you like remote this is the spot & seafood & welcoming islanders, who could say no to that? If you want shopping malls and box stores however, this is not the place for you! this hand-drawn map is just a taste of the beauty & history that awaits you in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia🧜🏼♀️
