This is the sixth in a series of posts describing my process in creating a Paradise Travel Map. The illustrated map above is of Tristan da Cunha, the most remote inhabited island on earth. All of the previous posts have involved the research, penciling and inking process. I have now completed the inking and hand-scribing process. Everything is now inked and lettered.
Next comes the scanning, which will be done tomorrow morning. Then the title banner, which is on a separate piece of paper, will be scanned and placed on the page. There will also be a lot of shuffling and adjusting of all the elements on the page until everything fits properly. Then it will be ready for the color, which will be done in Photoshop, using my Wacom Cintiq.
