New PV and Cabo Corrientes Prints

 Limited Edition on Thick Cardstock

Even in this non-starter of a season, I have put out new prints two of my most popular maps: Puerto Vallarta Centro & South Coast, and Cabo Corrientes Roadmap. Since these are small print runs, I decided to experiment with thicker cardstock-type paper. These will be very sturdy maps when folded, and when ordered flat, are tough enough to laminate as placemats.

Paradise Launches

New for 2021: A map for a fast-rebuilding community.

Streets are laid into the folds of hills and creekbeds, and land forms are drawn in relief with shadow, in Mapa Jeff's signature technique. The result is a a unique three-dimensional illustration of the landscape.

Other than ghost graphics for the churches temporarily lacking a facility, this map indicates as little as possible the tragedy of November 8, 2018. All street names from the time before are on this map, aside from a few whose new owners have already decided to take them private.

The first image shows the first edition print, covering Paradise proper, available in stores as of Jan. 27 (for now, Jeannie's Consignment is the sole vendor in Paradise; in Chico, Ellis Reprographics and Art Etc. on First Street downtown also have them).

They can also be ordered shipped or delivered locally at my online store.

The last shows the large version, which shows the region all the way to Mount Shasta. This can be custom-ordered mounted and framed.




Easy to read - easy to retail.

Chico 2021

Edition 2 of the Chico Panoramic Map focuses in on the city core for a smaller (2x3-foot), more affordable ($25) poster with more legible type. It is available so far at Made In Chico, Ellis Reprographics, and MONCA. Order the new Chico map at Mapa Jeff's online store.


Edition 1, first released in May 2019, proved uneconomical this time around due to a more than doubling of the cost for prints of that size at Mapa Jeff's usual vendor. There are still a half-dozen of these left ($50 each), and two mounted and wall-ready prints that were used as displays at Made in Chico are also for sale ($200 each).



Mapa Jeff originally designed the full-region version in Edition 1 to be printed five feet wide, but shrank the image to make it feasible to print at quantity. Going forward, this full-region map will be available at that size, mounted to foamcore and ready to hang with a frame/brace backing, signed and delivered locally, for $300. Contact Mapa Jeff at mapajeff@hotmail.com for details.

Mapa Jeff at MONCA

Thursday, May 30, 5-8 pm: opening party for Monca's summer exhibit, "Map It Out."

https://www.facebook.com/events/437611690324897/

Mapa Jeff's first-ever American regional city map will be on display all of June and July along with works by 30 other artists from all over northern California.

"Chico Iso 1.0"



The compass faces northeast at a tilt sufficient to see the horizons for about 100 miles at its furthest - the purple peaks at top.

At bottom, Chico, all the incorporated city save a few far-out nibbles; the 99 and the railroad frame Chico up like a tapestry loom.

This map is still evolving at the screen. But as a stationary item, it hangs up for close, well-lit, silent inspection. How well do you know your city?

I know it well, let's have a look.

Chico, California Panoramic Map

The first-ever print of this map will be shown at the Museum of Northern California Art (MONCA) in downtown Chico as part of its "Map It Out" exhibition, May 30-July 28, 2019.


A regional perspective, facing northeast, aligns the town with the canyons that send it water.



 Downtown area and lower Bidwell Park.
The central core's many alleyways are shown in yellow.



The Avenues, east and west, with Lindo Channel.
Bike lanes, on-street and off, are purple.



South Campus and the west side, the orchards that survive right next to the urban grid.
The Green Line urban development boundary, which has protected Chico's west side from development, is shown in translucent green.



The compass rose, with a valley oak leaf motif, reveals the isometric tilt of the map.
Chico has never looked quite right in flat, north-facing maps.
.



Big Chico Creek, the west side, and Ranchaero Airport.



New developments and old orchard lands at the city's northern reaches.
The roads at left are not yet on any map but this one.



Many streets at the northeastern end of the city are also new to any map. To capture the outer grids, I bicycled across building sites with a GPS tracker.



The neighborhoods along Lindo Channel Greenway, which flows with water only in the rainy season.
Each pink cross represents a church. Chico's one synagogue and one Islamic center are also represented.



Upper Bidwell Park, Canyon Oaks, and California Park stretching into the hills.
Private, gated streets are noted in faded red. Private streets that are open to the public are light blue.



Chapmantown is still not annexed to the city though it is surrounded by it.
This map shows the current city boundaries in precise detail, with small pockets of Butte County jurisdiction often peppering plots on the same block.



Outer Park Avenue, the Meyer industrial area, and the Comanche Creek Greenway.
A century ago, a railroad linked Stirling City (shown on this map) via the present Skyway all the way into Chico via what is now a long hiking/biking path shown at center right.



Paradise and Magalia, up the slope via the Skyway.



The peak of Mount Lassen, visible at the upper left corner, is 55 miles from Chico.



Lake Almanor and its towns are also featured in the distance.



See this map May 30-July 28, every Thursday through Sunday, 11 am to 5 pm.
