Featuring a recreation of artwork for artist Chris Robitaille, you'll be able to take in the sights and history of Montana as you put all the pieces together. Make sure you start with the edge pieces first for maximum efficiency! As you travel across the rolling plains into the rugged Rocky Mountains, you'll see images of wildlife, important towns and cities, Indian Reservations, and well-known landmarks. All of XPlorer Maps pieces use the story-maps of Robitaille, which he hand-draws with pen and watercolor.
XPlorer Maps is the creation of two brothers, Greg and Chris. Based out of Missoula, Montana, they had a vision to tell stories through cartography, and so they created a line of what they call story-maps to illustrate the landscape of beautiful places while including prominent landmarks and images that make each space unique. Chris is the artist who graduated from the Ontario College of Art where he received the Will Davies Award for Excellence in Illustration. Chris has traveled extensively to places such as China, Thailand, Qatar, and a range of other places. For a time in the 1990s, he lived in Kenya where he worked doing landscape and wildlife oil paintings. Enjoy his unique style of illustration with the Montana Map Puzzle by XPlorer Maps.
