Trinity River, California
Trinity River is a 165 mile long river located in the wilderness of northwestern California. I was approached by the Trinity County Resource Conservation District and asked to create an illustrated map for the Trinity River Watershed. Like so many other map projects, this turned into another long haul project. They continued to feed me more items that they wanted included on the map. In addition to that, as you can see, they wanted me to include the Trinity Alps mountain range, rendered in detail as part of the illustration. That really ran up the hours.
Working on projects with government entities almost always involves long delays. I started this project on November 30, 2014. I finished it December 16, 2015. That's 12 1/2 months. The changes and additions are always the killer...they can drag on for weeks or months.
