custom life story

My good friend Bet just did a show with the theme of maps. Amazing. Later I found myself drawing a diagram/map/web of all the things I love about her. Secrets, farm houses, flight, love, waiting... all of the things I have experienced with her and because of her.

On Sunday I drew a second map. A map of the things I love about my life in this small sometimes unremarkable town.

Tell me your story, and I will draw you a modified Icon-map for you too.

I love to share story.

As with all custom drawings you will be given first right of refusal, and are very welcome to include colors and symbols you love. Ask for one for you, a friend, your whole family. The concept will be the same--- bubbles and lines--- but personal to the narative that belongs to you.

Personality and Behavior
Biology (large or small)
Dutch history
Modern universe
English dictionary (large or small)
A dictionary of Mexican History (Spanish)
