Interior map created for 'The Throne of the Five Winds', an East Asian-inspired epic fantasy by S. C. Emmett, published by Orbit Books. When creating maps, I like to think of them as real objects from within the story's cultural context, with their own histories and tales to tell.
Chinese ink and pastel on printmaking paper; digital colours.
