West End Map


Boise’s West End is a once-forgotten neighborhood that is rapidly transforming with amazing parks along the Boise River, a diverse mix of people, public art in the works, and the new Whitewater Park Boulevard. The West End is close to downtown and almost everything else.

I created this commemorative map for the city and CCDC. I began with a layer of fabrics (linen, burlap, painted canvas) and chalk pastels for the river and park green spaces. I had this scanned and it served as a base for me to add visual interest with sketches, logos and tid-bits of information. The copywriters at Rizen made it sound great. The 11×17 size is perfect for posting on the wall. Check it out online here  

This map was created loose and sketchy to visualize what’s happening now, and to consider what could be next for this eclectic Boise neighborhood.
