Back in 2014, Anton Thomas began drawing a pictorial map of North America by hand and, four years on, it is finally complete. With many thousands of features, including 600 individualized cityscapes, it has been an odyssey of labor and dedication. Inspired by the majesty of Earth’s third-largest continent, this color pencil map attempts to merge art with informative cartography. By utilizing the strengths of either discipline, the hope is to tell a geographic story that engages a wide audience. In this presentation he will unpack the story and the concepts, while journeying across this pictorial map of epic proportions: The North American Continent.Presented in partnership with the Boston Map Society.
