Panoramic Map of Chico, California

Edition 2, 2021

This isometric, panoramic map of Chico turns the compass to the northeast in order to portray the city along its own natural lines, radiating out from downtown at center.

The Chico map, and larger custom variants, are now exclusively available at Chico Paper Company, 345 Broadway in Chico.

It was first printed in April, 2019 as a 3x5-foot mounted poster, of which two copies were sold from the Museum of Northern California Art as part of its "Map It Out" exhibition that summer.

Subsequently the Chico map was printed at a smaller size of 30x44 inches for retail sales at Made In Chico, a local-craftsmen's shop, as well as the museum and at Ellis Reprographics, a regional resource for surveyors, builders, and architects.

Chico Paper Company invited me to be a featured artist in their gallery and in spring 2021, became my exclusive dealer in the area. They sell them rolled up, and pre-framed for same-day sale as well.
