In The Big 5-0, I tackled the 50 United States and their mottos. That project was a lot of fun, so I’ve decided to continue with that geographic theme and do something similar for state capitals.
It always amazes me how many people don’t know any state capitals. Note that I didn’t say all capitals, but any of them. Pick a state…any state. Preferably your own state. Find a map and locate that one city that makes each state feel special with a nice big star.
I’m not sure I’ll actually get through all 50 because 1. I don’t want to commit to coming up with something for each capital and 2. I’m not currently in the glorious Thanksgiving-Christmas-New Year abyss that results in an abundance of free time. We’ll see how far I get before losing interest.
Once again, I have a few simple rules:
1. Each capital gets a 500 x 500 pixel square.
2. Each square must include the capital city, the state name or abbreviation, an outline of the state, and a little something extra.
3. That’s it…three’s a crowd.
And with that, let the project begin!
