So I haven’t posted in awhile, and that’s because I’ve been busy working as a graphic designer and cartographer at a custom globemakers (I know, it’s not a common thing, there’s only one in the UK that still does this apparently) where I make maps all day. Most of the time I’m the one that plots hometowns, vacation spots, and illustrations of tiny boats, among other things, like Manchester United titles, ship engine information, and poetry. I really am learning a lot.
After a few months of working on Earth and learning the lay of the land (literally as well as figuratively), I’ve started putting together a file for… MARS! More than one person wants a Mars globe and surprisingly, Mars has a lot of cartography to add – canyons, things resembling rivers, craters, landing sites, and volcanoes. I’m having a blast putting it together and I can’t wait to see how it turns out!
For those of you who don’t know about how a globemaker exists or what we do, I’ll explain after the jump 🙂
