Artist of the Week: Map
He is very much like his father in his love of maps. Larry is slowly collecting vintage maps of where our ancestors originated. So far his family is covered, now we just need to find a reasonably sized and priced one of the UK. (I'm English, Scottish and Welsh- my 6 months studying abroad in England was a bit of a home coming for me, I really blended in. That is until I opened my mouth and spoke.) In fact we all love maps. I am amazed whenever I encounter someone who can't read a map, it is so natural and easy for us.
Anyway Jake loves creating maps of new countries and carefully filling in the details.
He made this map just over a week ago. I don't know what inspired him, but I do know that I like it.
It'll be interesting to see what Jake does later in life. He has an interest in architecture which produces maps of a different sort.
