old maps


Map of Scotland

Drawn in a fantasy Lord of Rings / The Hobbit style.

Some people wondered if I was selling prints for this or would sell the original files. Id rather just share it and people can do what they want with it from there. 

Below you can find a link to download the original PNG file, since Tumblr compresses images quite heavily. It’s relatively low resolution but still, if you do print this let me know, I’d love to see how it looks!

If you’re curious about how it was made or the kinds of tools and resources used, I’ve written a little overview on Medium which you can read here:

Book of Shadows Ideas that Aren’t Basic

A local specific myth, cryptid, or legend

An obscure historical witch or an old historical spell

A map of your neighborhood with locations that appear ghostly or have interesting energy

Your personal associations to colors, plants to supplement traditional correspondence charts

A chart detailing information of spirits you have communed with

A guide to sailor knots for knot magick

Sustainable and eco friendly lifestyle tips

Magickal practices around the world

Obscure magickal tools or tools you invented

Varying viewpoints in magickal philosophy and technique

My assessment of the Power Rangers
  • Jason: troubled cinnamon roll, too young to be having an existential crisis
  • Kimberly: sassy boss ass bitch with a mean streak
  • Zac: caring and crazy son of a gun
  • Trini: smol angry lesbian bean
  • Billy: protect my son at all costs
