For this problem, the goal was to illustrate a location in map form. We were told to choose from a list of 6 locations and I chose Honolulu, Hawaii. I chose Hawaii because I felt like this was a great opportunity to demonstrate my ability to use mixed media and provide a wide range of color in a illustration. I collaged the individual landmarks, while using watercolor for the background. I assembled the illustration in Adobe Photoshop CS4.
The final print size of the map illustration is 9.5 by 12.5
