This listing is for a custom original 5" x 7" watercolor treasure map in the shape of any letter of the alphabet, and personalized with the name of your choice, with the map to be completed and shipped within approximately 6 to 8 weeks.

In search of adventure and stories worth tellin'? Ye'll find it on yer very own treasure island, in the shape of any letter ye like!

A perfect gift for pirates, sailors, buccaneers, swashbucklers, adventurers, story-tellers, and little boys and girls of all ages.

Please see the customizable details below, and copy and paste them with your answers, either in the "note to seller" section of your order, or in an Etsy conversation as soon as you place your order.



This listing is for an unmatted, unframed custom 5" x 7" ink and watercolor map. Matting and mounting are available for an additional charge. I work first with a nib pen dipped in India ink, and then illuminate my drawings with glowing watercolors. I will email you one photo/scan of the pencil outline before inking, for your approval. Minor changes can be made to the pencil outline, but once inking begins, changes cannot be made.


The samples above are of 8" x 10" maps; the 5" x 7" maps will have roughly the same amount of detail, with less open ocean space.

You must provide me with the initial and the island name; you may leave the remaining details to me or choose from the options below. Any details not specified will be left to my discretion. If you require greater customization than the options below, please let me know and I will send a customized quote and schedule for your map.

* SHAPE of Island: Please choose a letter of the alphabet for the shape of the island

* NAME of Island: Please choose a name for the island (i.e. Jen's Island, Alexander's Key)

* COLOR Scheme: Please choose from Antique (browns and tans), Bright (darker blues and brighter colors), or Pastel (lighter blues and greens and pastels)

* SEA CREATURE: Please choose from a sea monster, an octopus, a whale, a shark, or no creature.

* SHIP: Please choose from a schooner, brigantine, or Viking-style ship. See here for samples: http://www.etsy.com/shop/paintandink?section_id=5673327

* ISLAND FEATURES: If you have specific requests for names of island features (i.e. Polly's Point or Yellowbeard's Bay), please let me know before I begin the map. I can usually fit in 2-3 specific features, depending on the shape of the island; others will be left to my discretion. Most maps will include a campsite, mountains and palm trees, as well as ink blots.

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: I cannot use any details or names featured in books, movies, or artwork by other people or companies. Thank you for your understanding.

COPYRIGHT: You will be granted a limited license to use this map for personal use, such as on a small batch of birthday party invitations. The copyright for the artwork remains with the artist, Alison Whittington, and does not transfer with the sale of the painting. This includes the right to sell copies of this artwork, minus any details I judge to be personally identifying of the original recipient.
