[finished](Annual) map giveaway

(Apologies for frequent edits)
In times of G+ (which I still miss) I used to do once-per-year giveaway of some clumsily-made sketchbooks; if people wanted to pay for shipping, I added painted maps to it. This year I am just giving away maps because I hope that the slim letter has better chances to be delivered in timely manner than a more bulky parcel. In the light of this, the map will be shipped for no cost to you, unless you want a more expensive shipping with tracking numbers and such.

Please leave a comment first on which map you want and email your shipping address to cryptic_pale at protonmail com next. All addresses will be kept confidential and will be deleted once the item is delivered. Notes on current shipping situation are at the end of the post.

In this post the maps are photographed, not scanned, so colours and reflections might be slightly off, especially on mostly-metallic ones:

"Chaos Grass"; watercolours, gel pen, coloured pencils; ~9.5cm x 12cm (~3.75in x 5in)

"Coral Mountains", watercolour and watercolour metallics, gel pen; ~12.5cm x 9.5cm (~5in x 3.75in)

"Silvertine Coast", watercolour and watercolour metallics, gel pen; ~12.5cm x 8.5cm (~5in x 3.25in) - it doesn't photograph well due to silver underlay but it looks better in reality.


"Whispering Desert", watercolour, gel pen; ~12.5cm x 8.5cm (~5in x 3.25in)

As of now, all North American deliveries should be slower but (mostly) are assured. International shipping is severely interrupted and, as of the time of the writing, the postal carrier only delivers to Australia, Bahamas, Bangladesh, Barbados, Belarus, Belgium, Bulgaria, China, Croatia, Curacao, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ethiopia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Holy See, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Jordan, Korea South Republic, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macao, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, St. Pierre and Miquelon, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, United Kingdom, Vietnam and Zambia. According to the latest available discoveries, the virus doesn't survive during the shipping.

  1. I really like the coral mountains! I would rather let someone else have the opportunity to receive it first before requesting it for myself, but that would be my pick :).

    1. Thank you very much. I have some free time - if you wish, send me an email on the address above which map you liked the most and I will try to make something similar in style/colours to it, although there is no guarantee it will be similar at the end.

    2. Sorry Kyana, I only saw this reply now! Does the offer still stand?

    3. Yes. All originals were mailed but I can try to make you one map in a style of the one you liked. Send me details (which maps, maybe something you wish to see or don't see on a map like a coast, or no mountains) into the email above and I will see what I can do.
