|Animals of Canada Map|
I made a blog post before about the illustrated map of Canada I created for Nature Canada. Now I wanted to show you how I completed it as a personal art piece.
For the client artwork, I scanned in all the elements separately, so they could be moved around and scaled down as necessary to fit with the text and the layout. After the job was complete, I took my time illustrating more animals and slowly planning out and pasting down all my little critters and foliage pieces.
Below is a photo I took of my messy studio space while in the throws of it.
At the end, I decided it would be nice (and a little educational) to include labels of the names of the animals. I wish I could have included even more animals to the final artwork ... but I suppose there's always a limit.
I have prints of the Animals of Canada Map up in my Etsy shop! The print is 11"x14" which is a standard size for easy framing.
