When we create a cartoon map for your town or city, remember that it gets not only local exposure from distribution in your area, but we feature it on our web site for the whole world to see. We get lots of comments on the cartoon maps on our web site. Your town could be right here where Fernley, Nevada now is...front row center. As we add new maps, your map remains on the home page for viewers to see as they scroll down through the maps.

Last year we created a cartoon map for Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Shortly after the map was released we were approached by one of the towns in the county. We worked with them to create a cartoon map of Ephrata, one of the most charming towns in Lancaster County. I enjoyed learning about Ephrata and its place in early American history. If you would like me to create a cartoon map for your hometown, feel free to contact me. I'll be happy to answer your questions.

We draw cartoon maps for smaller schools, like Mount Hood Community College (below), as well as the big schools, like USC. This map, for USC's alumni magazine, illustrates where their weekender games will be held this fall.

If you're building a new housing development and you want to get the word out, do what they did in Gillette, Wyoming...let us create a custom map of your new subdivision. We can guide you through all the steps, from the first rough sketch to the final art. The client told me that the contractor was thrilled with the results of his new Enzi Corridor map. We can create the map in a realistic style as seen above, or it can be drawn in my usual humorous style cartoon map. Give me a call. I'll be glad to answer all of your questions.
That's it for now. Thanks for stopping by. Check back soon for more fun stuff from the outer edge of my ever expanding Cartooniverse.

I get inquiries from a broad variety of businesses from far-flung places, like Thailand, India, even a pet shop in Dubai. This was my first supermarket locator map. It's a web site map, showing where the stores are located through North and South Dakota and Minnesota. If you would like a map to let your customers know your location, contact me and I'll be glad to answer your questions. We'll put you on the map.

Introducing our brand new cartoon map series, Paradise Travel Maps. Each map in the series will feature an exotic locale such as the above map of Rarotonga, a fantasy island in the South Pacific. Last year we flew down to Rarotonga to research the island. I wanted to have a first hand knowledge of this Heaven on earth location before I began work on the poster. Wow! What a place.

Most people aren't aware that, though cartoon maps are my specialty, I also draw realistic-style maps...like this one for Mount Hood Community College in Gresham, Oregon. It looks a bit unfinished because of the empty outlying areas. They were later filled with text by the college graphics department, but I have yet to see the finished map. The one thing I will always remember about this map is the hours that I spent drawing trees, trees, and more trees.

This is my second map for the little Washington State town on North Bonneville. The first one was to promote the town itself. This new map is to promote their Heritage Trail system. You would enjoy visiting this scenic little village on the banks of the Columbia River, just below the mighty Bonneville Dam. What really makes North Bonneville different from other towns is that it looks like one big park...and there is no typical main street with downtown buildings. It's a planned community that was relocated downriver to make room for the dam. Somehow in the relocation process a typical main street never happened.

Over the years, we've created cartoon maps for the entire Washington Coast and Oregon Coast (twice). Now, for your viewing pleasure, we bring you West Marin County, California, one of California's most scenic stretches of coastline.
One of the things I enjoy about creating my cartoon maps is how much I learn about each area that I map. I learned a lot of amazing things about West Marin on this project. Sir Francis Drake, famed English sea captain and explorer stopped here during his circumnaviation of the globe between 1577 and 1580.

Large format cartoon maps are always a challenge. The Lancaster County Map is 18 x 24. It took up a big chunk of the summer of '08, working seven days a week to meet the tight deadline. There are two sides to the map, with two maps on the other side. I put 82 hours into the map. Some real war stories came out of this one. If I ever wrote an Adventures in Mapland book, this map would take up a whole chapter. Some of our maps are as small as 8.5 x 11, some are giant poster size. Whatever the size, we can draw it for you. Contact us and we'll be glad to answer your questions.

After many years of waiting in the wings, Fun Maps USA finally got that long-awaited call from Hollywood. We've hit the big time! I just created this Hollywood cartoon map for Doug Fregolle Promotions.
We also recently created a map of the United States for a television special that aired in July on
E! Entertainment Network.

Does your resort, or resort town need a map makeover? That's why the Aberdeen Daily World newspaper in Aberdeen, Washington called us. They wanted to employ our unique cartoon cartographic perspective to depict the nearby resort town of Ocean Shores. Throughout the summer season all of the merchants in Ocean Shores will now have copies of our maps to give away to visitors. Oceans Shores is the second biggest tourist attraction in Washington State, second only to Seattle. Contact us if you would like to see your resort on the map.

Do you live in a tiny town out in the middle of nowhere? Would you like to put your little town on the map? That's what Perry, Kansas did. And just look at them now! Give us a call and we'll do the same for your little town...or large city. All you need is for some of the merchants to get together, as Perry did, and "chip in" to fund the project. Then we're off and running.

Would you like your business or organization to STAND OUT in your town or city? That's what Seattle's Union Gospel Mission wanted, so we created a cartoon map of Seattle that highlighted all of Union Gospel Mission's facilities spread across the city. We can do the same for YOUR business in YOUR city. Contact me, and I'll be glad to answer your questions.

I was recently commissioned to create this new cartoon map for Centura Health, Colorado's largest family of hospitals and health care services, for their upcoming convention. The reviews have been glowing: "Bron, my friend, this totally rocks!!! I couldn't be happier. I love it...AND you are way ahead of schedule!"
