Panther Creek Map
I embarked on the mapping project of Panther Creek Ranch as testament to my love for the place I spent so much of my time growing up. It was a way to commemorate the place, the wildlife, the memories and the stories that came out of time spent hiking and hunting the ranch.
I began by drawing the roads, trails, and creek that cut through the property. Using satellite imagery and my own knowledge of the land I was able to develop a fairly accurate representation and included individual illustrations of wildlife and structures that dot the land. I also added labels to the places and sections of the property. I also developed a display typeface, Gouldbusk, for the headline on the map.
I have printed the map onto BFK Rives paper at 26” x 26” and intend to give the editions as gifts to friends and family who spent time at the ranch over the years.
