Kodiak Island Map – Outdoor Life

Kodiak Island, Alaska

Here is a small map I drew in September of Kodiak Island, Alaska, for Outdoor Life magazine. It was for an article about hunting on the island and I was asked to choose a few animals from the article to illustrate. I included the Kodiak bear of course, a blacktail deer and a harlequin duck.

It’s the second time I’ve drawn a harlequin this year. I also illustrated one in the feature where this map of Mt. Rainier appeared for Seattle Met this summer [shown below].

Much like my illustrations of vintage postcards, drawing maps is something I never thought I’d enjoy so much until I started being asked to draw them. I hope to get the chance to draw more maps in the next little while.
