Radical Cartography

Sketch of Sapphire City

Sketch of Sapphire City

Originally, I was going to do a map of a comic book universe. I started researching and quickly discovered there was not much context to work with. I would have to make up the entire universe and place different planets and locations randomly throughout the map. This did not feel ideal, so I shifted gears.

Right now my goal is to create a demographic map detailing the locations of the different supernatural creatures and influences within Sapphire City, the primary city in the Sparrow comic. I also have ideas for developing a subway or mass transit map, and possibly a few others if time allows.

Above is a sketch of the city’s geographical map. I took inspiration from Oslo and Tokyo on Google Maps to design the Sapphire Harbor. I’ll be adding a few major roadways and then I’ll block out different supernatural communities.
