Hand-Drawn Map of Medieval China
This is a map that I drew in Spring 2011 for a history course titled "Medieval Travelers' to China" at San Francisco State University. Although I do some professional art now and do not consider this piece up to par with my current standards, I really loved creating it and it certainly impressed the instructor! All of the locations mentioned are based on places discussed in the medieval sources we read as coursework. All of the line work was laid in pencil and then gone over with black and red ink (dipped, not fountain) and the coloring done by pencil. It is 17.5x12" in size. Figured I'd give it a share since I'm excited to be on board here and contribute what I may. Thanks for looking!
