The Ishi Nation – map on canvas

Posted: May 15, 2011 in cartography, maps, printing, the shop, Uncategorized
I (zeke) studied cartography (mapmaking) at Chico State in the ’90s, and pulled together a map show in Chico in 2008.  Here is a piece from that show called ‘The Ishi Nation’ – that I just reprinted on raw canvas. 
The original was 20×42 and drawn by hand over a digital shaded relief basemap.  The area is from Lassen Peak to Chico, and the darker lines show the watershed boundaries.  Shout out to Seamonster from the surreal shop-beauties in the background.  

This piece is for sale.  Let us know if you are interested in a custom printed map!

The Ishi Nation 26″x57″ – Chico is in the bottom left, Deer Creek is in the center.
