Pendersleigh & Sons Cartography — Map Merchandise

In recent years, I’ve had a lot of requests for printable version of “my map.” I’ve made hundreds of maps but since the digital map I made of Los Angeles County has been viewed over a million times, I have to assume that that’s the one most people are talking about.

Of course, people who really know my work also know that I’ve made hundreds of maps and that most are drawn in ink, painted in oil paint or watercolor, or some combination of materials (including correctional fluid). I’ve sold some of those original and have offered prints through various sources.

Part of the reason I draw and paint most maps is that I am not technically savvy. I learned to program in Basic, Pascal, and Fortran. My first social network was ISCA BBS. The last computer game I played was Star Trek: 25th Anniversary (1992). Instead of watching television programs, I mostly listen to radio dramas from the 1940s and ’50s.

However, people keep asking for maps and — after much frustration and hair-pulling — I’ve made these digital neighborhood and community maps available on mugs, stickers, wall hangings, hooded sweatshirts, &c. You can buy prints and canvas reproductions HERE. For merchandise like buttons, tapestries, laptop cases, &c, click HERE.
