Vicarious Travel


















Greece sounds lovely right about now. (Especially since they're predicting snow for tomorrow.) This is a map of different wine regions. Oh well-- it was fun to do, even if I won't be going there anytime soon!

We finally are getting our sunshine back, after too many gray, rainy days. But still...Greece does sound wonderful. Someday...

Cool map too!

I love your maps. They're so cheery! (By the way, my way cool Florida map tablecloth arrived today and it is WAY cool.)

Beautiful, Jen! Have you been to most of the locations you've illustrated? (And can you write the trip off on your taxes?) Do you have a good sense of direction? BTW, that Strange Map link you've got there is great!

Thanks everyone for the kind words! And Julie-- nope, only in my dreams... can I write that off? But yes, actually I do have a pretty good sense of direction... I laugh in the face of GPS! :-)

Hello! I realize this post is a year old, but I just wanted add that traveling vicariously is what I love most about making maps, too.

I have just found your blog via Google Alerts (for watercolor maps, I think), and as another watercolor mapmaker, am thoroughly admiring your work.

Hi Paintandink-- Thanks so much! I looked at your blog-- your work is wonderful, too! It is interesting how maps can ignite your imagination. :-)
