Day Four: Stuff That Takes Forever and Shouldn’t

Have you ever had one of those days where you think something is going to take a couple minutes to complete but in reality takes you hours? That was today. 
I wanted to spruce up the map for the interior of the book, so instead of having it as a vector line drawing, I decided to make it a sketch. Instead of this taking me my projected 45 minutes to an hour to complete, I ended up spending four hours. The main issue, and what took the longest, was figuring out how to get the map image into Adobe InDesign while maintaining a high print quality. Honest to God, this took me about two hours. And the bad thing is, I’m still not happy with the way it looks. So I’ll probably be up late tonight reading blogs, help sites and watching YouTube videos trying to figure out what I’m doing wrong.
If anyone has any ideas, please drop me a comment below.
