Since I’ve been a child, I’ve been fascinated with maps. I used to love spending time absorbed in a big Rand McNally atlas!
So I’m happy to have recently begun learning how to create digital map art. Figuring that I’ll start with maps in my local area, I created this DC Map Art in 3 color palettes:
- Washington Commanders Colors
People around here are crazy about the Washington Football team. I am not even a football fan and haven’t watched it in over ten years! But, I created this color palette knowing that others would dig that it has the colors of their beloved football team.
2. Cherry Blossoms Color Palette
Washington is famous for its cherry blossom trees around the tidal basin, so I wanted to create a map print in a color palette of this beautiful flower. What is nice about being a DMV resident is that there are cherry blossom trees planted all over the region, so you don’t have to travel to DC with the heavy tourism traffic to appreciate them!
3. Blue and Green color palette
No particular reason for this one, other than that I like blue and green!
Poster size prints (11×17) of these Washington DC Map Art Prints are available here.
