Internet Inspiration: Mapping New Terrain

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

These is this awesome tool I saw online for creating maps land in different shapes. It seems to work by projecting colors over a box of sand so that some of the sand is colored to be land and some is colored to be water. The part that is cool is that as you shift the sand the projection adjusts. It seems to track the higher and lower points in the sand and colors those points accordingly. Follow this link to Jason Campbell’s Instagram to watch it in action. I so badly wish I could play with this. But the closest I think I’ll be able to get for now is to play with sand at the beach. Find your own creative way to create a map of a made up terrain. Practice creating a few different lands. Maybe draw out a rough sketch of a fantasy land. Write a story set in the resulting made up land.

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
