This is a rather loose interpretation of the challenge, but I keep a jar of buttons right by my computer. [So it's an imaginary map of something in my local vicinity, at least]. Some of my favorites happen to have detailing that looks a lot like roads. The button is home to a group of city dwelling faerie-mites who build out of found objects, much like the borrowers.

It's harder than I thought to think on this small of a scale ^.^

Still working on it ^.^ Most of this is done in Sketchbook Pro, which I just got. I'm loving the program so far. I had to do the text and background ring in DrawPlus, since I am not sure how to do such things in sketchbook yet (or if they are possible). The font is "A Year's Supply of Faerie Cakes" by pizzadude, which I've been wanting to use in a project ever since I downloaded it.

I've finished up the storage area and began on the Industrial. The Industrial section is where larger items are broken down into small enough units for city construction, trade, or consumption.

The majority of objects are actual objects in my house. Some, like the honeycomb cell and waterdrop, are theoretical.

It was really fun mapping in a circle, though the bend at the edge of the button was a bit tricky. I fudged a lot on perspective and scale. ^.^ It turned out to be a bigger project than I imagined at first. I like how a lot of the different textures came out (metal, fur, plastic, etc), and envisioning how the small items might be converted was fun. I think my favorite 'building' is the hoop earring turned 'tea house', which had convenient divets which would be large enough for private rooms for a faerie-mite. I had a last minute brain freeze when I ran out of items to use though - fortunately a friend reminded me that circuit boards had a lot of intricate parts!

Cool! Is that the famous Teeny-Tiny Hadron Collider I see right downtown ? What an up-to-date little city!
