I'm drawing a new comic, ready to launch at next month's exciting Safari Festival. 

Huntress Thompson follows a solitary woodland ranger as she goes about her daily life.  Staying alive is HARD, she's  gotta make some tough choices.  It's bad news for her if she gets injured, or feels less than 100% alert at all times.  She's got some serious woodland stride and wild empathy, not to mention handling animal.

Here's page 1 and 2.

In their merciless generalisation, maps tame the wilderness.  They reduce geographical variation and replace it with symbols, deciding whether a few trees make a forest or if a human trail is recorded as a path or a track.
Geographical maps are abstract and concrete at the same time - for all the objectivity of their measurement they cannot represent reality, merely one interpretation of it.
