Collaborating with Bob Tannen I designed of 60 maps of each coastal county from Florida to Texas.
In late 2016 I was asked to collaborate with one of New Orleans most prolific artists, Bob Tannen. The project involved taking large maps and converting them into a vector format from photographs. Afterwards we created two separate maps for each county or parish. One map illustrated what each area looks like now and the other represented which counties and parishes that would still be above sea level in 100 years.
"All in all, Tannen & Foreman created 67 maps, each of a county or parish located along the 1500 miles of coast stretching from Florida to Texas. The maps show both natural features of the landscape as well as human-made cities, towns, highways, and borders. Low-lying floodplains are shaded in green, with higher elevations in orange and brown. Tannen uses the formal conventions of cartography in conjunction with his own informal verbiage, labeling the varying elevations as “high ground,” “mid ground,” “low ground,” and “no ground.”
