Zelda-obsessed ForeverGeek fans, this is one collectible you will want to get your hands on! The iconic setting in most Zelda games, Hyrule is probably your happy place, with its awe-inspiring beauty and diverse environments. No doubt you’ve spent many a night (or day) dreaming about it.
With this week’s giveaway, you can have Hyrule right in front of you.
Vincent, an artist who recently started what a “digital woodshop” in New Orleans has released the first product of a series which he calls Woodlands: a laser-etched wood Hyrule map. He’s got a one-person studio outfitted with laser cutters where he works with illustrators and graphic designers, and their debut Woodlands product is nothing short of awesome.
Vincent describes his work:
We grew up during a time when video games came with packed-in manuals. Sometimes, those manuals included a beautiful map of the world you were soon to discover. Our Woodlands series of laser-etched wood maps is a salute to those who love exploring in fiction and being immersed in the artwork that defines those worlds.
The first in the series is our version of Hyrule inspired by Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
Our Woodlands maps are a collaboration with Alex Griendling, a very talented graphic designer based out of Minneapolis.
The maps are etched on beautiful pieces of hand-selected maple ply that measure about 18-1/2″ wide by 14″ tall.
Includes a keyhole slot on the rear for hanging.
He’s definitely one of us, and he wants to share his work with you guys, so we’re giving one wood Hyrule map away.
First, let’s take a closer look.
