I’m going up the country, babe, don’t you wanna go? I’m going up the country, babe, don’t you wanna go? I’m going to some place where I’ve never been before.

Yes! The road calls. And I am listening! Soon, my friends, soon.

In the meantime, I’m focused on some new projects.

In case you haven’t found my shop… Here you go!

Ah yes. Projects. I have so much work, it’s crazy. If all my designs sold, I’d be rich! But, I find joy in the process. There is richness.

What news? I’ve been getting contacts from Australia, lately. I’ve sold to folks Down Under, in the past. The difference is the volume of work I’m sending there this month! It gives me a chance to test out some new packaging processes, I’ve worked on. Packaging for mounted maps is always a question mark, or just a pain in the butt. This time, I may have nailed it down!

It resembles a crate!

I got a request for some custom work by a high profile client… I’ll let you know how that turns out. While you wait, Here are some samples of a very large pushpin map I’ve been putting together for them. I’m not sure about the colors, yet. It’s based on two different designs I’ve already produced.

There is a joy in developing new designs. I tell customers who have ideas they would like to purchase that I will come up with a concept and develop it to their specifics. If they decide not to go with it, it’s alright, I’ll post it anyway. Who knows, maybe someone else will buy it!? I’m rarely disappointed.

I may look at this one again, altering the color specs. Maybe it deserves to be less dark!

Be that as it may, I’m contemplating creating a listing for my ever popular BWCA map (Boundary Waters Canoe Area) as a mural! The five panels would be set up like wallpaper, with overlapping seams. The material is an adhesive fabric, which works well on many wall surfaces (not too textured). It stays as long as you want it and comes down without fight or residue. It can be reapplied, for a number of times.

My guess for the listing would be:

140”x80”
5 panels
$400

If there is interest, I’ll definitely proceed!

I’ve got a backlog of concepts and listing ideas. Life is too short! Wish I didn’t need a regular job!
