The Land of Make Believe Map - Remastered 1.5
Serendipity brought work by Jaro Hess and me together eighteen years ago; that was when a poster copy of one of Jaro's artworks, "The Land of Make Believe Map," was walked into my studio, carried under the arm of a local Inn Keeper.
My short story is that the older version of the image had suffered from handling over the years, so, five years ago, I began a project to remaster the illustration.
The first remastered version is completed and will soon be available for purchase. The task was not a small one, taking thousands of hours of painting pixel by pixel. Adding detail back into the print necessitated the re-illustration of the complete original work.
