This is a map, painted with gouache on chipboard, of the children's garden at Atlanta Botanical Garden. The idea was to imagine what happens in the garden at night, when all of the people have gone home, and everything comes to life. I tried to make it sweet and just a little bit sinister at the same time.
You can see more details after the jump.
You can see the first sketches I made of the little squirrel character here, and some of the illustrated maps that inspired me here.
Also, here is a very interesting post on the Uppercase blog about cartographic vandalism.
