Westeros Map Update 2
Several hours later, I’ve split the paper into two, put one half on the wall, and got the grid lines on it. It’s 3 feet by about 5 feet. I look at this blank canvas and am so damn excited. It shouldn’t be legal.
I want to press myself and my pencil and my creativity up against that wall, all over that beautiful canvas. If Ros were my canvas and I a painter, she would be getting this look right about now.
You know, I think the reason I love staring at the big, blank paper of such map projects is because they are my window and my doorway: It’s big enough, I could walk right through. It’s my magic Wardrobe: In that “blank” space is drawn all the images of my imagination, if only I take the time to stare.
I’m telling you gaiz: Fantasy cartography makes me stupidly, creatively happy. And it always has.
