Working with Neutral Ground, I designed and illustrated this map of Ocarina of Time’s Hyrule. In addition to making sure the map displayed the correct form of Hylian (Hyrule’s ever-changing language), I played through the most recent 3DS version of Ocarina of Time to ensure the cartography was equally faithful. Doing so helped to make sure the already dense map was full of little details and suprises, like Lord Jabu-Jabu in Zora’s Fountain, and the Royal Family’s tomb in the Kakariko Village Graveyard.
After illustrating the map, I handed it off to Neutral Ground, where they were laser engraved onto 18″ x 24″ pieces of hand-selected wood.
“I’ve always been fascinated by the beauty, atmosphere and sheer design daring present in many historic interiors. I can often be found poring over books on old houses, and on the great designer-decorators of the past. I find expression for this passion by constructing and decorating miniature rooms, creating new designs inspired by the famous or interesting rooms I have read about.” (x)
