HAND DRAWN MAPS
This is a map from memeory of whats interesting on the Angelsey coast path and some ideas about an icon key.
I want to map my coast walk in wales! Wales has just last year completed its footpath ALL THE WAY AROUND the coast of wales. Which is great. I want to walk parts of it and map my journey as both recording whats there and dreaming what could be there... cabins / local food /coffee /tea /pints of beer /camping spots/ best sea view are all important to my journey map.
Week 1 handdrawn maps
This is a map I drew 2 years ago planning a 2 day walk through Snowdoniain wales with my friend , where we would stay and approximate time it would take from Ruthin to Betws y coed over the top of snowdon to Bethesda. It was in a place familiar to me but that i d always gone in a car so it was a great adventure by foot by bus and hitching. i can remember lots of funny things that happened just looking at it. I made it as a useful tool but I like looking at it to remind me of our walk.Im putting it here as a reminder to myself as its a similar walk with a friend that im planning.....
This map I drew for class , it relates to another skillshare class im doing on manufacturing your own products. This is a map of all the material than im using in my lamps, im really interested in local production and making things from local materials. thats trees a local wood mill/ traveling to anglesey to process the planks into smooth sheets to work with. cutting and assesmbly. Finishing materials and lamp components all shown. I like to make this legible to others by making and inteligible icon key... at the moment i dont think anyone understands but me...
Inspiration map : Ye olde map of Anglesey
When listening to the class lecture where " disruptive maps" was mentioned and after reading about a classmates vancover freelancer map it made me think how insanely great it would be to have this old map as a basis for a wifi hotspot map of anglesey. LOVE the idea of old maps with new information overlaid....
