Art Maps: Past, Present & Future

For the upcoming 2018 issue of Chincoteague Waves Magazine, Joanna had the pleasure of illustrating the centerfold maps of Chincoteague and Assateague.

The Chincoteague-and-Assateague map is largely informational and representational. We've heard of kayakers taking previous years' editions of Waves maps with them on the water, and we wanted to make something that could continue to serve that purpose.

 This map of Chincoteague and Assateague was hand-drawn and colored by Joanna King.

The Chincoteague-only map has an additional layer of info in Waves: all the local businesses that are advertising in the 2018 issue.

And just for you, dear reader, we also created black-and-white versions for you to color yourself and label with your favorite places!

Now, for the past & future.

The past: for years we've had a hand-drawn map of the Islands hanging on our wall. It's moved from the dining room to the living room to the office. Perhaps you've seen the one?

It's by Megan Willer and Zebie Hursh, and it's a fun, fantastical take on the Islands, complete with duck crossings, Maureen Beebe, and horseshoes marking the pony swim trail. We love it.

But our friend Jon from Sundial Books tells us that this map has gone out of print... and in the years since the map's creation, Chincoteague has changed quite a bit. 

Anyway, the future:

We think it's time for a new, huge, lavishly-illustrated art map of Chincoteague and Assateague Islands.

And so that is what Joanna is working on. Right now.

If you'd like to be among the first to know when such a map is available for purchase, kindly leave us your email address below. We can't wait to share it with you!
