Connie Brown’s Custom Maps

The Hartford Courant reports on an interesting business: Connie Brown, working as Redstone Studios, paints one-of-a-kind, custom maps for her clients. Preparing the highly personal maps can take up to a year, and she usually works on three commissions at any one time — one of which was for Vice President Cheney, whose daughter commissioned a map of his great-grandfather’s Civil War exploits.
