I've drawn many maps over the years for magazines and books. This is the first one that I've posted on my cartoon map web site. I see by examining the illustration that I colored it with markers. This illustration was created in 2000. In 2002 I began using Photoshop. Now I color all my work in Photoshop using a Wacom Cintiq.
I began my career using Dr. Martin's Dyes as a coloring medium. After many years of Dr. Martin's dyes, I moved to watercolor, then colored markers. Now the only time that I use a wet medium for coloring is when I'm teaching my watercolor floral Painting in Paradise workshops.
