New Notebook – New Map

There are a couple hours between when you have to arrive at the park in order to have a parking spot and when the community fireworks program actually starts.  So this was a pre-4th of July fireworks* dungeon.

(*these were fireworks held on the 3rd so that kids could go and stay up late)

I’d grabbed this old but unused notebook to bring along, a fat Paperchase gridded notebook with hundreds of thin pages in it. It’s probably A5 size (roughly 5.5″ x 8.5″), and it’s so fat the spine is curved, rather than straight.  There are probably 400+ pages in a notebook that’s over an inch thick.  So, this could be the first of many, many maps (and other notes).  The grid is fairly close on the pages in this notebook.  The grid that I drew into the map is actually every 2 squares.

To make the map, I just laid out an assortment of rooms across the page, and then connected them together.  I wanted a really tangled, haphazard looking layout, and that seems to be what I ended up with.  I took some pictures along the way to show the process. I only had one pen with me, so this was all done with a simple medium Flair pen (except the gridding, which was added in with a thinner Micron after we got home).
