Radical Cartography – Sapphire City Sketch

Working on a double-whammy here! This is going to be a map of Sapphire City, the main setting for the Sparrow. But it’s also homework! We’re supposed to do a bit of radical cartography in Illustrator for our assignment. This map will highlight the supernatural demographics of Sapphire City and where different groups hold sway.

Radical Cartography Brainstorming

I’m a little stumped on what to do for my Radical Cartography project, so here are some ideas I’ve brainstormed. World map showing countries of origin for different superheroes, especially non-American superheroes. A social media visualization showing a “map” of one of my social media accounts and who it’s connected with. Visualization of time spent in my house —

Dery Response

The long reach of television influence is pretty frightening. Dery mentions how control of the media is used to influence people and communicate only what certain powerful interest groups want shown. He explains that Reagan’s administration launched this into a frenzy and it hasn’t slowed down ever since. We only need to look at the media coverage of important issues like

Sparrow Postcards

The Tactician, Son of Athena

Here’s another Friend Project superhero! This is of Roma Larin. I decided to make him the son of Athena, goddess of wisdom and strategy. I wanted to incorporate several of Athena’s symbols into this costume, so here’s what I’ve gotten.
