framedcruzALL MAPMAKERS CHOOSE WHAT TO INCLUDE AS WELL AS WHAT TO LEAVE OUT — AND ACCORDINGLY, A MAP IS A REFLECTION OF ITS MAKER AND HOW IT WILL BE USED. SANTA CRUZ ARTIST KIRBY SCUDDER CREATED A POSTER OF SANTA CRUZ THAT INCLUDED ONLY THE FEATURES HE FOUND MOST EMBLEMATIC OF THE CITY. TO CREATE LARGE CITY MAPS, HE USES GOOGLE EARTH FOR RESEARCH AND PHOTOSHOP WITH A WACOM TABLET TO PAINSTAKINGLY DRAW PEOPLE, VEHICLES, BUILDINGS, SHADOWS, LAND AND WATER FEATURES FROM AN ANGLED AERIAL PERSPECTIVE. HE TAKES GREAT LIBERTIES WITH SPATIAL ACCURACY — BENDING AND FORESHORTENING LAND MASSES, SELECTIVELY SHOWING ONLY THE RESONANT LANDMARKS, STREETS AND BUILDINGS HE BELIEVES ARE THE ESSENCE OF “THE CRUZ.”   SANTA CRUZ SENTINEL 2015
