Another Work-in-progress of my rat comic. This is from page 2. However, after making 'Why?' I'm having second thoughts on how I should shade this comic, so I might go back and shade it more painterly, whilst maintaining the existing line art. We shall see ;D
Title: A General Chart: Exhibiting the Discoveries made by Capt. Cook in this and his two preceeding Voyages; with the Tracks of the Ships under his Command.
Mapmaker: Ltn. Henry Roberts (1756 - 1796)
Technique: Copper engraving.
Roberts’s important world map on Mercator's projection which includes the tracks of Captain Cook's three voyages of exploration. Cook made an enormous contribution to the overall knowledge of world cartography. He discovered and charted; the east coast of Australia, New Zealand, the Hawaiian Islands, explored southern waters and disproved the existence of a navigable Northwest Passage. Roberts's chart was the most up-to-date world map for its time.
