“The Altered States of America” is Chop Shop’s take on the US map via a theme that’s near and dear to our hearts: sci-fi, horror, and fantasy. This is an illustrated map populated with the legendary events and characters from popular sci-fi, horror, and fantasy film, TV, comics and legends. What makes the map even more fun is that it depicts where the fictional stories take place, not where they were filmed or produced.

The project was originally a Kickstarter campaign that ended in September and was funded almost 400% past our original goal. For a limited time we are pre-selling the prints and matching the Kickstarter rate of $65 + $5 shipping. The print is a large 36″x24″ five-color poster printed by Valhalla Studios on French Paper 100lb Whitewash. At this time, we’re steadily making our way west to California and should be done by Nov 7th and shipping by the 20th, but there are still some gaps where we could use your help! If you know of any references you think should be included (especially for the northern border states) make your suggestions in our Altered States survey here.
