The Road to Nowhere

Both Mom and Sean asked if I were going to include a Saskatchewan cover in the Nowhere series, so here it is. Initially I tried to include Saskatchewan's shape much as I had the other provinces, but because Saskatchewan is a rectangle I just couldn't make it work. So instead I used the provincial flag as a base; it, too, is rectangular.

Initially I had ambitious plans to make the road through Saskatchewan resemble a heart rate monitor signal, with a peak in the middle. Instead, I wound up using Google Maps to plot the route from Lloydminster to Flin Flon, hit the "print screen" key, selected the route, copied it and applied the pillow emboss blending effect. I think it looks kinda cool.

Great idea with the flag.
