Next step, (1.) the land/sea divide and (2.) beaches traced accurately:

Then I traced out accurately where the River and Liffey and Canal run and into the sea. I drew the lines in pencil and mapped out the lines origami swans :

I went back to work today with the intention of digitalising this badboy this evening on illustrator, to make it printable in book format and also to make it a digital image with animated gifs as explained in the video tutorial (want to learn as much as i can!)

But then I had an extra idea. I thought why not make a printed version of this map, one that can actually be folded into a paper map itself. The idea would that the person uses the map to fins all the big water areas in Dublin and then doubles the maps function by folding it into a paper boat to bring to location. I thought I'd would be a nice idea to go with the meaning of the make, give the people a reason to actually go the sea!

So first thing's first, I had to learn how to make a paper boat!! I'm swimming in them at the moment, here is my very first ever one :)

All of this has now made me think about the shape of the map and the practicalities of it. I like the circle, but seems the origin of the paper boat is a rectangular shape I may have to rethink this. Here is a very quickly scribbled idea of what rectangular would look like:

But back onto the important matter, the design of the map. Here's how I'm getting on so far. Work in progress, but now time for bed!
