1. What were the inspirations for your map? 
I was inspired by the mountains encompassing Phoenix. Went to this great map shop called "Wide world of Maps" and found topo's of the mountains.

A map of the neighborhood based on which houses had Jack-O-Lantern's at Halloween. 

3. Do you think maps and cartography are important? Why? 
I'm a girl, I suck at reading maps. I let Google Maps to do it for me. 

4. What are your map's boundaries and how did you choose them? 
The edge of the sheep skin chose the boundries.

Hell yes!
