The final cut paper shadow box for my upcoming show. This map details what little is known about Land of the Dead, and the outlying Pine Island. I made the parchment using a bathtub and a pot of coffee.
This map is the keystone to the whole show, and shows elements of the other pieces on display. It stitches the whole story together.

I used red thread for the blood. Here are some work in progress shots.
