Friday 5(ish) Minute Map & Sketch – Addergoole’s Village

In the setting of Addergoole, beyond the school, there is a little Village, described variously as “out of a Normal Rockwell painting,” “Small Town USA”, and “far too quaint.” It leads out to residential areas, where some people – parents, former students, staff – live, and where lady Maureen’s creche for, to be frank, unwanted children live.

I did a very sketchy elevation of the outside-facing part of the Addergoole-school part a couple weeks ago:


And then today, while in training with a bit of time, I did a bit of “five-minute” mapping of the Village itself and a sketch of part of it.

It is based in part on my memories of Spencerport, NY, Brockport, NY, Canandaigua, NY, and other nearby towns.

P.S. The library says “Falk Memorial Library.”

Friday’s Five-Minute Map (give or take): Edally Academy

This is a rough top-down view of Edally Academy, done by tracing dimes (see this tweet) because I don’t keep a compass at work.

I’m really enjoying #FridayFiveMinuteMap, and I encourage everyone to join in!

More Maps!

I finally got a picture of the rivers, national boundary, cities, and now wild-rice roads for my new map project:

(and here’s just the mainland)

Now I have all of the major features on here, it’s time to start working on pretty-making.

And this past Friday, for #fridayfiveminutemap, I did a draft of my map for the Cartographers’ Guild April-May Lite Challenge (link to follow when their site’s not down): a campground.

This is one of Rin/Girey’s early campgrounds. Some changes will need to be made – the goats might be in the tent, and that’s not the Velka Ree, it’s far too small and if this is the scene I’m thinking of, they’re not to the river yet. But hey, 5 minute draft.

#Fridayfiveminutemap – Same world, different era!

Folchir's Fort.jpg

While I was looking up maps, I encountered the premise of “friday 5-minute maps.” And, while nobody had been active on any of the tags in a while, I thought it looked fun.

So here’s my first idea: Folchir’s Fort.

This stands (loosely) where on my big map project there is a red star – ‘cept it’s been long enough (approx 1500-2000 years ago) that the river has moved. The bigger houses are meant to be almost longhouse style: communal big buildings thrown up quickly, because shelter was needed.

(I gotta say, some of the maps in the Google Plus community are amazing for 5 minutes!)

Now taking suggestions for the next few fridays worth of maps.
