    State of South Carolina


    2016, 14” wide by 14” tall, watercolor on cotton rag paper


    We hail from the state of South Carolina.  We love its varied regions, people, cuisine, and history.  To celebrate this allegiance we present the State of South Carolina map.  This map shows the various counties, county seats, major highways, lakes and rivers. 


    This map has a great story as well.  The great uncle of our chief cartographic artist was born and raised on Johns Island South Carolina in the first decades of the 20th century.  In the 1910’s he made a map of South Carolina as a school project.  Our chief cartographic artist has this map in his personal collection and we have always loved the balance of colors between vibrant and organic tones.  Our color palette drew inspiration from those suite of colors used over 80 years ago in a one room school house.
