Okay, friends: Let me start by saying I love the little town in which I live, Perry, Michigan. Small, homey, safe, traditional values, great schools, etc. etc. etc. I deliberately choose to live (& work) here!
As with anyplace, Perry contains many idiosyncrasies. Therefore, the map I'm entering in the June challenge is designed to satire my home town. Actually, I imagine it also satires most rural American towns.
This map is less geography than it is ideology, although I have followed the competition guidelines in that when placed side-by-side with a "true" map the similarities will be apparent. I realize this is an atypical map for the competition and our Guild in general, but I sure had a good time creating it! (Extra credit for you if you can name my fantastical cartographic inspiration!)
Thanks & good luck to all of June's "Challenge" entrants!
