This is the magazine that closed its submissions early and I was freaking out a little about it. It turned out that they’d received a ton of submissions and decided to close it, but I emailed them and obviously, was able to submit. I’d love to get a subscription to it, but it’s a bit cost-prohibitive. I might settle for just the one copy because it’s heavy on cartography and of course, I’d like a copy for posterity’s sake.
Perhaps this will give me the motivation to finish the series. Believe it or not, I have only one map left to do — that of England. I haven’t sewn in several weeks, after a frenzied few weeks churning out border after border, because I haven’t been able to get a reasonably decent high-resolution map of the English borders. I usually zoom in on Google Maps, but England’s land borders are dotted lines there, which won’t show up very well when printed. Hence, I’ve been procrastinating… a lot. I should really try to finish it before the end of the year (really, it won’t even take me that long).
I’ve been wanting to start a new series for a while, although I’m not certain what it’ll be (but I’ve had some ideas, like disputed borders or shrinking sizes of lakes). For that matter though, I’m not even exactly certain if I want to take a little break from sewing maps on paper and branch off onto another medium, which would be pretty fun too. Anyhow, I should shelve the thoughts temporarily and get to work getting a reasonable image of the English border so I can get my series done (fifty-one maps!).Advertisements
