Martha's Vineyard Watercolor Map by Abbie Zuidema

Martha’s Vineyard was a special commissioned surprise gift. My favorite kind of work! With visions of the island dancing in my head, I was inspired to create my own rendition. 

The towns of Aquinnah, Chilmark, West Tisbury, Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs & Edgartown are all noted.  There is also a peppering of lighthouses, sailboats, a nod to the Wampanoag Native Americans who originally fished the island, summer strawberries & the historic 1889 Flying Horses Carousel.  

This map is a special treat to all of those who hold Martha’s Vineyard near & dear to their hearts.  Someday I’ll make it out there-till then I can dream.

Prints are available in my Etsy Shop for $35 Clams.

Montauk-"the end." by Abbie Zuidema

This is my love letter to Montauk.  Please click on image for a larger version. A little history, a little adventure (sharky) & surfing and some places to check out. I might have to make another map of this place. There is just so much to it!

This is also the map that I submitted to "they draw & travel"  website.  Lilla Rogers, founder of Lilla Rogers Studio, will then have 2 days to review all maps and pick her favorites. On July 27 (at Noon, Eastern Standard Time) winners will be announced on TDAT (and Facebook/Twitter too!)  The grand prize is $1,000 and the 5 runner-ups will each receive $200.They are having a contest to win 2,000.

Wouldn't that be cool?

They draw & travel was also sweet enough to give me a shout out on their blog.  Check it out, it is so nice.
