Zzoom Media’s newest client, Fearless Brewing was in need of a facebook cover photo and twitter background. The idea we came up with was to display Fearless’ viking theme and communicate that it is an Oregon-based brewery. To convey this, I created a map of the Portland area in the style of an old viking map. Before working on the computer, I illustrated the map by hand using prismacolor markers, colored pencils, and rapidograph on illustration board.
I used the prismacolor to create a base color (above), and then used colored pencils(below) to add details.
