This design is inspired by the song BIG ROCK CANDY MOUNTAIN from the O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU? soundtrack. The song describes what a hobo would consider paradise to be. It’s a land where there are streams of alcohol, no cops, and plenty of free food.

Here we see four hobos with a crude map trying to find the Big Rock Candy Mountains. I chose a brown color scheme to keep with the movies sepia tones.

"lemonade springs" sounds dirty. Nothing wrong with that, I'm just saying...

Originally I had intended to hand write all the text, but that also meant I had to make the text larger in order for it to be legible. This led to the map becoming too cluttered, especially on the right side where the hens, lake of stew, and cigarette trees are already squeezed together. In the end I went with the cleaner, smaller, easier to read text.

The style of the map is inspired by the Hundred Acre Wood map by A. A. Milner. I’m a big fan of Winnie-the-pooh, and I instantly fell in love with this map when I saw it.

Love this design and the song. Just to be picky though, there are cops, it's just they all have wooden legs....
