How to Make an Illustrated Map

Posted 5/18/2020


Cartography – the science or practice of drawing maps. It may involve the superimposition of political, cultural, or other nongeographical divisions onto the representation of a geographical area. Creating an illustrated map allows us to use our creativity and bring to life a geographical location – it may be a favorite vacation spot, some place you used to visit growing up, a local park, or it could be your Kendal community.

Oh, the places you’ll go without ever leaving your home. But, what a story your illustrated map will be able to tell once you’re done. What a wonderful opportunity to share something that is meaningful to you in such a creative and personal way.
