The State of Victoria
The State of Victoria Map
The State of Victoria map has been hand-drawn in red and black ink over a 55 hour process. This map speaks to the diverse wilderness, mountain ranges, coastline and unique regional areas that makes this state so spectacular. This was also the original map that launched the collection and it was very enjoyable to create - to this day it is a particularly special one for me. The design itself is bold and strong, with the all of the state's iconic geographical features, wilderness areas, main cities and towns present. You will also find a large array of smaller townships also included and a unique style of mountains that do not feature on any other map in the collection.
The soaring mountains of the Great Dividing Range and the Victorian Alps take up much of the East, with important peaks such as Mount Bogong, Hotham, Feathertop and many others all individually labeled. The rolling hills of the High Country are dotted with the many small towns that is it so well known for, and the Gippsland region features large expanses of prominent wilderness areas and river systems. To the West are the iconic Grampians, the Wimmera and dry Mallee regions, which display a very different type of terrain. The coast is dotted with a range of towns both small and large, important capes, promontories and iconic national parks. All the main regional areas have been marked out with individual labels too; another feature that is unique to this particular map. It all combines to make for a well balanced and diverse map that showcases the unique geography and townships of Victoria. It was an absolute pleasure to draw!
What Goes Into Your Map
Born out of a love for Australia's mountains, wild places and fantastic nature, these maps are hand drawn with black and red ink in a style reminiscent of Christopher Tolkien. Each design is highly detailed and takes approximately 50 to 60 hours to complete, and are printed in limited numbers. They are perfect for those who want a special art piece to celebrate the uniqueness of their little corner of the world.
I hope you enjoy the intricate style and penmanship of these maps. As these are hand drawn they do contain imperfections and variations, but that is part of their charm, and sets them apart from mass produced and computer generated prints.
Fine Art Grade Paper Quality
Your fine-art print is made on an acid-free 270gsm matte parchment and feels fantastically heavy and sturdy when handled; the best way to describe it is like card with a tactile feel that still has a bend to it. Detailing remains extremely sharp and colours are vivid thanks to the use of 9 colour pigment inks and industry standard paper quality when it comes to fine-art printing. You have the option to choose between two background colours; the Original, which is a soft white and has some subtle texturing, or Antique, which is printed on the same paper but contains an aged-look reminiscent of an antique map.
