A few years back in the lead up to Game of Thrones: Season 1 I decided to make a map of Westeros. This was before we had the awesome Song of Ice and Fire maps. I also wanted to print it out on our large format printer at work (we’re talking 48″ by 80″ or some such nonsense). I started to make it in Photoshop, but the resolution needed was too large for my computer to handle. So I made it in illustrator so it was VECTOR BASED. It was also an awesome way to learn some fun tricks with brushes, symbols and patterns. 5 seasons and a much more powerful computer I dusted off the old file and thought I would post it.
This map made the rounds once Elio & Linda retweeted it (I’m sure it’s floating on a wall in Spain somewhere, or at least a hard drive I hope!)
This is also because I am working on an awesome project that uses some of these skills (it may or may not involve laser cutting). More on that in the future!
Also, the inspiration / base I used for this map comes from this thread! WAY BETTER MAP.
