Ongoing work, coloured pencil on paper, size A2, yet to decide whether to annotate each cavern with detailed descriptions so the white speces become a texture of writing....

This is fantastic! I'm keen to see where you go next with this. Maybe some sort of shading along the borders of the caverns, a pattern of dots or cross-hatching? I like your idea of filling up the white space with some sort of artistic text.

cheers,

For me the complete story of a map or a book are the marks left by those who cherished or depended on it. It would be fun to leave enigmatic jottings or stain marks, false fold marks, I already have the whole eco-political dynamics of the place worked out and even secret places...

Perhaps once this stage is complete I will do some subtle touches in photoshop
