Map of Downtown Juneau

Monday, June 30th 2014 by Pat

I love illustrated maps so I made one of downtown Juneau.

The map will be available as a limited print at the gallery and I’ll also be handing out a bunch of the fold-up walking guides for free to local businesses and tourists.

The back includes information on nightlife, basic survival, food and all my favorite things about downtown Juneau.

If you’re wondering about the economics, it started out as a map of just a few places I like and grew from there. I didn’t charge anyone and we’re paying for the printing ourselves. I hope to make my money back by selling prints. I also hope putting this out there is good publicity for the gallery and brings a few people in the door who might not find us.

Beyond attracting people to the gallery, I want visitors to be able to appreciate Juneau as much as I do. I want them to find places they’ll love like The Rookery CafĂ© or secret spots they might miss like Aunt Claudia’s Doll Museum.

This work had two primary inspirations, the 1984 Fiesta Promotions map of the Juneau area (below) and the Americae Sive Quartae Orbis Partis Nova Et Exactissima Descriptio.

    Love it!
    So frustrating to hear that the cruises hip passengers are getting a message that beyond the red dog is dangerous! Maybe is will encourage them to venture out!

    Saw you at your sdcc booth today. Love this! Please let me know if we can order it online. We had a virtual walk down memory lane just looking at it so we’d love to hang it in our place! Thanks so much! Excellent work!

    I was there with my family as tourists from Vancouver to Alaska by cruise in mid August, your gallery and Rookery were awesome! Though the gallery smelled brand new and a guy was just finishing the letterings on your windeow, so we thought it was a spanking new place! Love the illustrated map, me and my bro both got one and will keep it in safe and memorable place. Also my nephew has got a deck of amazing playing cards, wonder if I could find more online?
    Thank you.
