This map was made for a course at MCAD called "Illustration Topics."I chose to illustrate the state of Arizona for my location. I was most drawn to the warm yellows, pinks and reds of the desert landscape - something I'm missing especially lately, now that winter weather's settling in!

And did these species drink Tang and eat freeze dried ice cream?
