Hometown Map

The hometown map project is a first year tradition at the University of Miami.  The project is the first one students are assigned when coming to school first year, and it is used to teach students the rules of composition as well as the various techniques of inking on mylar. The purpose of the map is to show the hometown of each student, and to highlight significant architectural features of each city. The project was a huge learning experience, and took about 24 hours to ink in several sessions. The perspective view at the bottom sheet illustrates a view of the San Francisco Bay from the Berkeley Hills.

Inked by hand.
