Along the way I have experimented with a number of different approaches; most considered only suitable for the trash bin but all helped in the evolution of “The Road to Nowhere”.

Firstly I considered the difficulties parents face when travelling with children and the need to keep them occupied to avoid the perennial question “are we there yet”.  I experimented with combining a conventional map and pictorial representations of landmarks on the route turning it into a car game.  That idea went the way of the dinosaur and I moved on to a fantasy map idea………………………………

Those were also consigned to the scrap heap and I moved on to the idea of combining concepts such as land mass sky and contour lines in an effort to map dreams.
